Description

A patch of non-scenic bushland with scattered boulders of fine Brisbane granite

Approach

Park at Bennett Rd near the bike track (Royal Pde). 10th Hole Boulders are about 50m along the bike track on right. Access main reserve by turning left past start of bike track, past bar gate, and following fire trail left and up. On right there will be several tracks leading up; take the obvious one behind a big log and follow MTB tracks or bush bash uphill until boulders are encountered. The lower boulders aren't located yet; but may be found as you proceed up the hill. Further up the hill, another fire trail leads E-W across the reserve. The upper boulders Lil Cap and Hobotown are the biggest and densest areas. Lil Cap is found perched above the upper fire trail, and Hobotown a bit further up from there. Basic map can be found in photos. Park in red area. Blue is approximate route up to Lil Cap. The Military land is well fenced so don't worry about wandering onto this.

A few years ago there was basically Frog Buttress and Coolum. Since then there has been more development than Barangaroo and South East Queensland should be on any climbers radar no matter what your style. Except ice climbing, definitely no ice climbing. But over 1250 routes with hard sport, multipitches and quality trad to make a great trip.
