Access issues inherited from Cedar Creek

Rainfall/Flooding/Raised Water Levels

'Cedar Creek' is prone to flash flooding after heavy rainfall and general flooding or regular high water levels during/after rainfall which significantly impacts access to boulders and areas.

Check local community pages if unsure.

Private Property

Toward the end of Cedar Creek Rd are several private properties inaccessible to the public. Ensure no gates are passed (even if open).


Just above the main waterfall at 'Cedar Creek' and on the right.

Ethic inherited from Cedar Creek

'Cedar Creek' has been in the news due to its popularity with the public; namely rubbish and conflicts with landowners. As climbers we must set an example for ourselves:

  • Respect the landowners
  • Take your rubbish (as always)
  • Bring containers for removing public rubbish if you can
  • Do not contribute to the graffiti
  • Bring poo-bags for your crag pup

Grade Route

Start of great undercling at the back, hard move up and the easy traverse left and top out.

Start on slope under-cling on the inside of the cave then work your way along the easy traverse, when you reach the end of the traverse reverse and traverse along the top of the boulder. Top out in the middle of the boulder.

Stand start with a decent two finger lock, then get your feet up and it's over.

Start of the big undercling, then up and then right through thin roof holds to a pinch, match it and then bust onto the easy holds again. Could be a very cool link into the next problem.

Start under the cave, traverse right, crux is move through hanging block then right onto face and up.

Fun jug traverse across face.

Sit-start this one move wonder, with LH low on lip crimp and RH high on good crimp. Left foot high and right foot in the big crack. Straight up to a vegetated top.

This little rock is on the opposite side of the river to the cave, a meter or two downstream.

Sit start with small crimp and slopey sidepull. Big slap up and over the top. More moves than it looks. Is graded with using the chockstone for feet. Probably still stiff for the grade.

Sit on the convenient rock in the water, start on sidepulls and up.
