About Acropolis:

All the literature Iíve read about climbing big walls in Tasmania almost always required an approach of epic proportions. Days spent waking through mud, the only climbing involving climbing the walls of a smelly crammed hut as you wait for the weather to clear. Fortunately, thereís a middle ground. Welcome to the Acropolis. Itís been said that the number of climbers who have ever climbed in the Acropolis is outnumbered buy the number of climbers you can meet on any given weekend at the Arapalies. During a visit to the area in February 2004 I would say thatís most defiantly true. Resources for climbing in the Acropolis are limited mostly to vague route descriptions in out of print guide books. Here youíll now find the most information youíll hope to find anywhere on one of the areas best routs. (And from a Canadian no less) Hope you enjoy it.

Off the boat, you then walk north for about a 1 hour, until you reach the Pine Valley trail. From there itís you walk another 2 hours west to reach the Pine Valley hut. . From the Pine Valley Hut, it is a 3-5 hour hike to the summit of the Acropolis 1471m. walk past the signs of the hut, follow the track north past Cephissus Falls.
