Access issues inherited from Shady Side Bouldering

Climbing straight off the Tourist Track should be looked at as a privilege and not a right. Access could very easily be taken away. Please be good custodians for our sport by leaving enough space for walkers when belaying, and if bouldering - have a spotter manage your mats &/or keep them well off the main path. Preferably brush your holds of chalk once finished to maintain natural aesthetics, and for other climbers who follow.

Ethic inherited from Shady Side Bouldering

The Shady Side Bouldering is the most sensitive area in the Gorge in terms of access. This is due to the shady side walking trail being one of the most popular walking trails in the city for locals and visitors alike.

Please be very courteous to walkers. It is your responsibility to move pads out of the way of all walkers and passers by, do not ask walkers to step over your pads.

Access to bouldering directly on the shady side footpath is a privilege we as a climbing community do not want to lose! Please represent the climbing community in a positive and friendly way.
