Thank you! I've been trying to convince people of this fact for years. Better rock, better routes, shorter drive, less ballache at the bottom, more of a river to swim in.........as an interstater driving to Canberra, Coree would probably be the 4th crag I'd visit.
Super location though, I used to go 'mountaineering training' by riding out from weston creek then bashing up the front face to the summit. 60ish hilly k's on the bike + 600 vertical m of steep scrambling with fantastic views from the top. Good times!
Blacks range it is, pad or no pad, and despite the fact that i have hated bouldering for years the short drive wins... red rocks next time
@rodw "Wingello is about 1.5hrs away too..with a 15min walk in for a 2wd....ODH will show you around he loves the place." was actually pretty keen to check this out, but i took a swipe at bundybear on chockstone this week, so i though i better wait another week before i venture up there given that he seems to be the author of all the ACA stuff for wingello... i would be equally wary of any form of contact with ODH....
