Description

The boulders scattered around the quarry. Lots of steep quality stuff!

Access issues inherited from Statham's Quarry

The gravel road into the quarry runs off Ridge Hill Road and has a combination-locked gate (normally locked), the code to which can be obtained from the Department of Parks and Wildlife on 9290 6100. The quarry is also easily accessible on foot after parking on the closest corner when driving down the Zig Zag road. Don't leave valuables in the car.

Approach

Depends which boulder. Check the topo
