A small cave surrounded by boulders and cracks. Routes described L to R facing the obvious cave.

Many more unclimbed sandstone boulder problems lay deeper west into the bushlands along the contours of this knoll.

Access issues inherited from White Rock Conservation Area

Be aware that there is a rare plant that calls the boulders we climb home. It is in our interest to accommodate it. More details can be found on the ACAQ web site:



Traveling up the main track until you have hit the T-junction next to the massive white tree then head left along the same road that takes you to the Underground. 50m before the Super Hard to Miss cave is a steep slab on the same side (right hand side looking to the Underground). Walk up the slab and take a left at the T-juction.

Alternatly keep walking on the road until you see the Super Hard to Miss cave (overgrown as of 2017). Head 100m directly uphill past the Super Hard to Miss cave and you will find another cave surrounded by a small oasis of boulders.

Ethic inherited from White Rock Conservation Area

Redbank is home to some extremely rare plants that call the top of some of our boulders home. If there are logs defining top outs please respect these and avoid trampling anything that isn't grass. For more information check out http://www.qldclimb.org.au/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/White-Rock-Rare-Plant-Notice-4Sep13.pdf .

Be mindful of other users, don't leave rubbish or disturb any vegetation. Stick to the established tracks where possible. Do not use steel wire brushes as these will take away the holds.


History timeline chart

Climbed in August 2013 by Dan G, Sam B, Alex T and Liz C as an extension to developing the super hard to miss cave. Later efforts were added that year by UQMC on a bouldering trip led by Nick Tierney and Phil Beattie.

A great battle went on between Elliot Leech and Matt Cochrane for the first ascent of Trebuchet and thus Elliot sent it one attempt before Matt. Hence we have to live with the name 'The Buff Breasted Button Quail', Elliot's favourite quail and also the rarest of quails in Australia.
