About Glen Helen:

A long neglected area that offers some of the finest moderate routes the Territory has to offer. It combines great climbing on quality routes, a great waterhole, some beautiful scenery from the top of the crag, and best of all, a bar and pool table within staggering distance. What more could you want?
Nearest town or city: Alice Springs
Directions: Easily reached on sealed road by driving W on Larapinta Drive to a prominent fork approximately 55 kilometres out of town. Turn R on Namatjira Drive (it is clearly signposted) and following the signposts to Glen Helen Homestead. The cliffs are obvious and there is climbing on both sides of the range, and on either side of the waterhole.
