Summary

30 minutes from Canberra, the granite boulders offer a variety of climbing, mostly set in state forest

Description

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

Surrounding these are a large number of granite boulders and crags up to 20 meters in height.

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

Access issues inherited from Australian Capital Territory

If you have benefited from climbing access and infrastructure in the ACT, please consider joining the Canberra Climbing Association (CCA). The CCA spends considerable behind-the-scenes time and effort managing access for the climbing community to ACT climbing areas.

Membership is inexpensive and provides a great way to keep up-to-date with access issues, codes of conduct and general goings on in the ACT climbing community. Membership also provides discounts for local outdoor retail and climbing gyms.

For CCA details visit: http://www.canberraclimbing.org.au/

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
