Access issues inherited from Passchendaele State Forest

HQ Plantations act as land manager for all the bouldering locations listed below. They operate as Plantation Licensee under the terms of the Forestry Act 1959, and are thus obliged to permit, but not necessarily promote, recreational access. However, climbers should understand that the primary purpose of a State Forest is timber extraction rather than recreation, and HQ Plantations have legislative authority to restrict recreational access from time to time where timber harvesting operations presents a hazard to the public. Furthermore, HQ Plantations are required to recognize all roads within the licence area as public roads. However, they have authority to temporarily restrict access for the reasons already given. Please recognize the authority of any signage that restricts access. Please obey the instructions of the Plantation Officers who patrol the area. Should you feel that any restriction is unjust or unwarranted, contact ACAQ,, and we will take up the matter for you.


Take the same approach as Middle Sector (driving down the Bush road) but once in front of A Name And A Number Boulder- keep driving past heading into the forest. Drive down the rocky trail (4x4 or high rider needed) for 200-300ms before turning left into another logging trail. Drive down this for 100ms. Engineering sector is on the right.

Grade Route

Same crouch start as A.I with jug. Punching hard up to the horizontal crack up left, finishing straight up for a legal high (Project 9 in P.Cranes guide). To get down from this boulder- jump across the death gap to the next large boulder and then fireman slide down the leaning tree- or alternatively stack a lot of pads.

Crouch start on the obvious jug and move straight up on side pulls to a breezy mantle. Great rock! Watch the massive fallen tree on the landing.

FA: Peter Crane

Start 2ms right of AI. Stand start on the bulge with two razor blade crimps in the clumps. Mantle the scoop and figure out a way to escape the big bulge.
