Ambers Gully Guide

A Crag Guide gives an extensive view of all sub areas and climbs at a point in the index. It shows a snapshot of the index heirachy, up to 300 climbs (or areas) on a single web page. It shows selected comments climbers have made on a recently submitted ascent.

At a minor crag level this should be suitable for printing and taking with you on a climbing trip as an adjunct to your guidebook.

1. Ambers Gully 8 routes in Area



All Bouldering

Lat / Long: -34.865291, 138.724619


A little outcrop just left of the Ambers Gully waterfall with some bouldering on a boulder and small wall behind it further down along the walking track.


Dave Adams & Terry Doleman put up 4 ten metre routes here (no route descriptions provided), becoming harder from L to R (13-16), on the rock to the left of the falls in December 1989. Bouldering can be found on the large block, and the small outcrop behind it, just before reaching the falls.


Park in the Black Hill Conservation Park car park on Gorge Road about 3.5km past the Stradbroke Rd roundabout. Follow Main Ridge Track to the sharp left hand turn up hill. Here leave the track and follow the Ambers Gully Track to the right until the large boulder and outcrop is reached. It's then a 10 minute walk to the outcrop.


Dave Adams & Terry Doleman (December, 1989). Bouldering has happened on the large boulder and small outcrop behind for years.
