Description

A big, easily accessible freestanding rock right next to the tourist track has some good bouldering, but also has very little room for mats, climb with care.

Access issues inherited from Mt Ninderry

Mt Ninderry is an access sensitive area. Please car pool to minimise parking problems (lots of parking at the highway turnoff). There have been complaints so please be quiet and respectful. Please approach via the land atop Ocean Vista Drive which is now under Sunshine Coast Council ownership as part of the Mt. Ninderry reserve. Use the turning circle at the end of the road and park up on the grass verge on the mountain side of the road. Spread cars out as much as possible. Better still, park 50m back up the street on the shoulder adjacent the steep embankment. Don’t use the carparks in the turning circle. Be respectful and low key. In particular, use QUIET voices on arrival and on the walk-ins - noise travels. Don’t linger over beers or cooking up noodles after climbing and definitely NO OVERNIGHT STAYS. Don’t urinate in front of houses (yes there’s been complaints!). This is a peaceful residential neighbourhood, so we want to be good stewards of climbing. The 15 min walk brings you out near Enter the Ninja arête.

Approach

Stick to the main tourist track until about 3/4 up you will see a big freestanding rock, to the left of the tourist track, with many cracks and features.

Ethic inherited from Mt Ninderry

Wear a helmet, use a stick clip, be safe and tread lightly and quietly. Be careful of the grass trees and orchids. Don't impinge upon potential trad routes with new bolts. Respect tagged projects and the individuality of existing lines. And please dispose of human waste properly!

Straight up the crack feature in the middle of the big rock, follow the crack to the top and mantle out, descend down the back of the rock.

Pretty jank, mossy, standing start boulder. Go up from some solid crimps, hit a couple side-pulls, Stevie-step on up, slip your phalanges into some holds, bing, bam, boom, you're topping out Gooch Trooper.
