Description

PSA: There is private property right in the middle of the conservation park please take note of this and have a gander at a map before stumbling around the bush into private property. Unfortunately the land owners hate building fences as much as they hate people on their land so try not to cross any barbed wire fences (you may have to look down), if you stick to the established areas you will be fine. Loads of rocks and boulders in the whole conservation park, most rocks in the area are fairly poor quality as far as bouldering goes, until you dig a little deeper and discover some of the excellent bouldering this area has to offer. Plenty more boulders to come as there is still a huge amount of un-sent boulders and potentially undiscovered areas.

Approach

Park on Quinzeh Creek Rd at the wickham peak walking track entrance. Alternatively park roughly 300m further downhill along Quinzeh Creek Rd (-27.807339, 153.146973) for quicker access for most boulders/sectors

History

History timeline chart

The first known discovery of this area was by Nate Foster in the early 2000's and he spent some time climbing undocumented around the area with Simon Moses, Vikki Moses and Co. The original Logan pine forest cave was the only documented area for many years and little information was known of the area, perhaps people have been climbing here for years without documenting, who knows? In late 2018 a tip off from Benji Bartholomew about potential boulders in this area hit the right ears. A small crew consisting mostly of Corey Batten, Sam Bowman and Benji Bartholomew with scouting help from Zac Supertramp set off to establish the area. Although there was a lot of trash boulders found at first, they discovered some diamonds in the rough.
