Summary

Bouldering on great solid sandstone

Description

Suburban bouldering in the middle of Griffith. Loads of problems on the orange boulders below the Hermits Lookout. At the top of the cliffs the rock appears to be quite conglomerate, but the rock quality on the boulders is similar to Gramps sandstone.

Access issues

From the Griffith CBD follow the signs to Scenic Hill Reserve, turning right at the top of the hill towards the Hermits Cave tourist walk on Scenic Drive. From the car park/lookout go down the stairs on the left and follow the multiple tracks around the base of the boulders to the right.

The area can also be reached from the Lawford Cres, next to the Ted Scobie Oval. There is a rough track that you can drive your car on to get to the boulders if you are to lazy to walk.

Ethic

Urban bouldering and some roped climbing. Low impact bolting is a good idea here, carrots and anchors have been placed out of view when possible. Please remember you are sharing the area with walks and mtn bikers, act in an appropriate manner! Minimal chalk and avoid large tick marks. Please take your and others rubbish out with you! Keep noise levels down as sound reflects off cliffs down to houses.

History

View historical timeline

Climbing here started in the early 90's when Anthony Alexander and Jacob Ilse did some trad lines, then followed soon after by bouldering which became the main focus. A basic guide does exist.
