Summary

Large area of coarse but solid stone, getting up to 7m in places

Description

A huge area with tons of potential. Most of the easier stuff (V1 and below) had been done, but nothing else. Get on it

Access issues inherited from Spring Mountain

The forest is Ipswich and Logan council reserve and has free access.

The areas deep in the forest are remote and have limited mobile reception. There is a maze of fire and logging trails throughout the forest and it is very easy to get lost. Always carry a GPS.

If you get hurt, lost or bitten by a snake rescue will be difficult and help will take a long time to arrive.

Similarly to White Rock, a rare plant, the Ruffled Plectranthus (Plectranthus habrophyllus), can be found growing on top of rocks here. Please don't disturb these. Check it out here: http://www.qldclimb.org.au/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/White-Rock-Rare-Plant-Notice-4Sep13.pdf

Approach

Park at end of Whipbird Place. Follow the walking track down and turn right, then take the first left. Veer left down the path into the gully, follow this track until the fire trail. When this joins the fire trail, head right until you reach the crest of the hill. Then, walk left into the bush, towards small boulders visible about 50m in. This is the top of the ridge, and the Shelbyville boulders are further along the ridge on both sides.

Ethic

Being next to Springfield, Shelbyville is the natural name for this place. All climbs have Simpsons inspired names, so please keep this up.

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.
