Summary

The rocky shore on the Northern side of St Helens Point stretches from Blanche Beach through to the boat ramp. Hug Me I'm Scared is the pick problem.

Description

Area of mostly low boulders with some small beaches. There are a few gems along this stretch, particularly the Tiny Towers.

Access issues inherited from Tasmania

Many locals continue to use community run website thesarvo.com for crag/route updates and noting any access issues. The associated app can be downloaded and used offline!

Gerry Narkowicz also produces hardcopy guides to numerous venues across the state via the 'Climb Tasmania' website

Approach

Access from either end and rock hop along. The boulders to the SW are closest if you park at Blanche Beach, the boulders to the NE are closest if you park at the Boat Ramp area. Low tide is easier walking.

Where to stay

Accommodation in St Helens.

Ethic inherited from Tasmania

  • The operation and use of drones by park visitors on reserved land including national parks is not permitted​.

  • Please note that Tasmania has notoriously patchy phone reception for particular service providers. Telstra is the most reliable. An emergency Personal Locator Beacon or similar is recommended kit when climbing in remote locations.
