Description

Large overhanging boulder about halfway along the ridge. Project offwidth up the middle and some easier stuff on either side.

Access issues inherited from Big Hill

The crag itself is in a flora reserve and there is only a thin strip of land that extends to the road. Do not cross the horse stud to access the crag there are new owners with expensive horses and they are touchy about this.

There have been issues previously with 4wd vehicles driving onto the reserve and property and shooting. Kangaroos and wallabies have been shot and left to die with some making down to the property. Because of this, the gate has now been locked so that vehicles can't get on. If climbers see anything like this happening or untoward, please contact the ACAV and contact can be made with the property owner and police to report them, it would be much appreciated.

NOTE: There have been a huge increase in the amount of snakes that have been seen – lots of browns. So take care.

Falcons nest there in September through to about November so don't access then.

There are some endangered wildflowers that grow amongst the crag boulders and cliffs (some can be found on the 'sandpaper terrace', as well as numerous wombats, echidnas and falcons, so be aware.
