Access issues inherited from Toohey Forest

'Toohey Forest' is owned by the Brisbane City Council. It's an important habitat for 400 plants and animals, and is very popular with walkers, joggers and picnicking families. Therefore the usual rules of taking out your rubbish, keeping noise to a minimum, cleaning any chalk marks and so on are particularly important here if climbing is to remain an acceptable activity in the eyes of the community.


Just downhill from the lefthand end of the 'Large Crack Boulder'.

Grade Route

Start on obvious jug of Crouching Tiger. Traverse R along slopes and pockets into start of Hidden Dragon, then up that problem.

Start in the middle on some pockety side pulls, traverse slightly left on jugs and straight up to mantle. Sit start on a few nice crimps for a few more moves at the same grade.

Low start on arete, Big throw to a Slopey jug at the lip or some fiddly moves on crap holds and then up to same, then up and mantle on slopers.

R of HD, around backside. Tricky first move then, up and mantle.

As of late August 2021 the problem wasn't well described and there wasn't a topo hence no one quite knew if they were on the right problem so here's an attempt at a description and topo.

Stand start. Right hand sidepull eye height jug. Left hand and feet as required. Head up.

Sit start. Right hand low on good crimp. Left hand relatively high on small pinch. A strong pull up to get off the ground then find your way to the top.
