Summary

Beautiful red gold granite and unique rock architecture make for some of the best bouldering on the hill. Down the bottom there are even some overhangs!

Description

"Roll up, roll up! Ladies and gentlemen the Menagerie has creatures both great and small, both cuddly, and deadly. Witness the chilling Reptile Boulder, marvel at the magic of the Wizard Boulder, and be astounded by the unbridled might of the great El Toro! This way, this way; redeem your Scoupon at the gate!"

Jumble of problems in creek depression south of the Menagerie

Approach

Walk directly up and over the hill from the Cork Oaks carpark and you will reach the Scoupon boulder on the ridgeline. Alternately follow the hiking track towards The Oval from the Cork Oaks car park, and when you round the bottom of the hill head left and up the dry creek bed towards the Gutterball and Strike boulders.

Ethic

The carny folk of The Menagerie purport to Christianity, but theologically they err towards the antinomian. The intricacy of their moral machinations finds apt analogy in the dexterity of their tiny carny hands. Let us simply say they keep the place clean, and the animals in good temper, and you would do well to do the same.
