About Hanging Rock:

There are almost 100 lines on this 1.75km limestone scarp. The routes are up to 25m high and most of them are in the low to mid 20's including the 24m classic mixed route ***"Poison to Poison". Due to the soft nature of the rock, care should be taken when "testing" bolts and placing natural pro. When you are ready for a change, there is a swimming hole and lots of bouldeing to do too. Camping is avaible at Hanging Rock Bridge. The crag is off limits during lambing ,late August to mid October. There is potential for more devlopment here.
