About Cataract Gorge:

Dolerite crag climbing along the Esk River right in the centre of Launceston. Nothing is that tall but the rock quality is generally excellent.
Nearest town or city: Launceston
Directions: Just walk up the Zig-Zag track from King's Bridge in Launceston and you'll be falling over heaps of little buttresses, and climbers adhered to them, in minutes. Most of the climbing is on the down side of the track, there are eroded foot pads to most of the more popular areas. There are also quite a few routes and boulder problems along the shady side of the Gorge straight off the tourist track
