Description

A few low ball climbs with trick sloper top outs.

Access issues inherited from Mountain Lion

The Mountain Lion road sign is currently a burnt pole, so when approaching from the Henty Hwy side of the valley keep your eyes open for a small sandy car park on the right hand side of the road just after the Victoria Range Fire Trail gate (on left).

Approach

Smallish bloc 50 metres left walking trail with burnt tree hanging over it. 100 metres before Pride Rock on left.

Ethic inherited from Mountain Lion

This area has been quite badly burnt from the 2013 fires. Please keep to the foot pads as much as possible to stop further erosion.
