Southern Terrace

  • Grade context: AU
  • Ascents: 17




A collection of walls just below the trail running parallel to Penrose St.


Several separate walls offering bouldering up to 4-5m on generally good rock. Many walls gets sandy after rain and some walls are susceptible to lichen. Generally good landings.

Access issues

No known issues however this crag is right next to a popular walking trail and above a busy playing field.


Park near the play equipment on Penrose St and follow the trail into the bush, turning left when you hit the main trail. The crag is directly below the main trail. Easiest access is to head west until the trail drops down to the level of the base of the crag (shortly after the pipe) then follow the base of the crag. Alternative it's possible to access the crag from small gullies and drop downs just off the main trail.


Don't damage any of the figs at all.
