Wind Wall




This is the main wall at Coree with the highest concentration of routes. It also has the easiest access - a big 20m from the car. The wall faces north, but stays shady until about 9 AM in summer.

Access issues inherited from Mount Coree

The Coree Summit Trail is currently open (as of early March 2018). Curries and Two Sticks road open, Pabral rd closed.

The ACT Parks and Conservation Service (PCS) and NSW Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) have identified the ongoing deterioration of Pabral Road and the inherent safety risks presented to users during wet conditions given the slippery clay-based nature of this road. This culminated in $50K worth of maintenance work in 2014/15 and in 2016/17 Pabral Rd was closed for approximately 6 months due to the prolonged wet period and associated road degradation and safety issues. As you would be aware, these trails are used by the public, but they are primarily maintained as fire trails during the fire season, and maintained to a standard to also minimise sediment channelling into the Lower Cotter Catchment and subsequently the Cotter Dam. With the above in mind, PCS and NPWS propose an annual seasonal closure of Pabral Rd between 1st June – 31st August via existing gates at the top and bottom of this road. Pabral Road will also be temporarily closed outside this period if deemed necessary due to safety or vehicular access causing unacceptable damage to the road surface. In most cases, the adjacent Curries Road will be open and offers an alternative route to Brindabella NP and Two Sticks Rd. In particularly wet periods, a gate will close access to both tracks. Alternative access during these periods will be by Two Sticks Rd (via Brindabella or Blue Range Rds).

Road closures will be signposted on site, and conveyed through Transport Canberra and City Services website - or Access Canberra 12 22 81.


From the last U-turn, head down and left for 10 meters or so before a bolted wall appears on the left hand side.
