Scout Crag Bouldering

  • Grade context: AU
  • Ascents: 70




Several mid sized boulders litter this area and have some good bouldering.

As the boulders are right next to the river, after heavy rain the ground can be muddy and soft. Bring tarps to protect your shoes and pads.

  2. ~10-15 minutes, steep terrain through bush.
    Park in the dirt clearing on the side of the road (-35.32620, 148.9550). Walk down hill following the feint track that crosses over a dirt road and continues on the other side. After 5 minutes you will reach the trail that follows the river. Turn left onto the trail and walk south for ~10 minutes. The rocks will appear on your right <5 meters off the trail.
