Shark Rock




Short climbs.

Access issues

Be courteous with noise etc as you're only 50m from the house's back deck when you top out.

Someone is bee keeping near the dam so beware of bees.


Don't walk up the driveway as stated in the guidebook, it's private land and there is now a serious gate.

Park on the corner of Glen Forest Drive and Jelicoe Road. Walk down the 4WD track that continues in the place of Glen Forest Drive. When you reach the end of the fence on the left turn left down obvious track. Turn right down obvious track just before the house. Once you pass the house on your left, after about 30 seconds turn left down faint trail at the grass tree. You'll pass an abandoned quarry on your left and come to the Fin boulders on your left shortly after. The trad lines are further on to the left.

Start on the same rail as didars dilemma and traverse right to the arete using crimps. Work your way up with a desperate reach to the top then traverse right to the middle of boulder and top out.

Left of Didars Dilemma.

Start at the buldge and work your way up to the tip. Sketchy top out but adds to the thrill of it

St and start then work your way using the crimp, crack and jugs to the top. Avoid choss on top and and use the flake

Start on the first ledge then campus up the ledges till you can get a leg up and top out
