Does anyone know how long the glue up has been in the tunnel there?

Dalai?

She is pretty with an awesome landing.

I've a heap of resin and track rocks ATM so will get around to glueing up the hole thing with hangers soon.

You can see the 'holds' on the right.

If you want to invest time in gluing up a concave creek tunnel, the one on Gardiners creek under Burke rd has a flat concrete landing at its upstream end as long as it hasn't rained...

I can photograph if required.

Na, thanks anyway Dalai. I lived further down the creek for years and there is one like this with a sandy bed. Flooding changes these landscapes regularly.

Still might take that photo Shortman - could motivate someone to do a glue up at the Burke rd tunnel which is closer to me... ;-)

Dalai, depending on which end of Burke Rd (or which Burke Rd for that matter) you are referring, there is a glue up near the Burke Rd freeway overpass of the Monash. It's is near the bike path tunnel, but not in it. It is on the Camberwell side of Burke Rd, where the road is elevated to clear the freeway very near to the tunnel on the side next to the park with play ground (which incidentally has a kids bouldering wall). It is on the left if facing towards Dandenong Rd. If you find a small basketball court near a soccer ground you are on the right track.

It looks as if it's been there a while (missing one or two holds, been painted over), but definitely usable.
I was planning on resurrecting it in late Feb once work slows down.

I know that wall you refer to; I've never bouldered there....

I am referring to the creek tunnel same side of Burke rd. Overhung but the base will get wet after any rain.

There are a number of outdoor bouldering spots too. But handy to have something close to home...
