Description

West of Canberra, on the other side of Bullen Range you can find Tidbinbilla nature reserve and the deep space tracking station.

You can find great bouldering, with some trad, sport and aid routes for variety as well.

Access issues inherited from New South Wales and ACT

If you have benefited from climbing infrastructure in NSW, please consider making a donation towards maintenance costs. The Sydney Rockclimbing Club Rebolting Fund finances the replacement of old bolts on existing climbs and the maintenance of other hardware such as fixed ropes and anchors. The SRC purchases hardware, such as bolts and glue, and distributes them to volunteer rebolters across the state of New South Wales. For more information, including donation details, visit https://sydneyrockies.org.au/rebolting/

Approach

Head out of town via Cotter road from Weston, or Point Hut road from Lanyon.

Directions can be found at the subarea level.

Where to stay

Cotter campground is the closest accommodation if you want to camp, otherwise Canberra is only 30 minutes away
