Glass House Mountains Rock Climbing Experience
This 6.5-hour Queensland rock climbing experience is suitable for complete beginner and intermediate climbers. Ascend an ancient, volcanic peak with spectacular scenery, located just over an hour's drive north of Brisbane in Glass House Mountains National Park. The rock climbing starts on small cliffs, working your way up to the summit cliff face. A professional guide(s) gives you tips on basic techniques to help you to complete this mental and physical challenge; guide-to-participant ratios are kept small to ensure you get the most out of your experience.
Your qualified guide meets you at the Mt Ngungun parking lot, where you'll receive an introduction and divide up the climbing gear up between all the participants to carry in to the site. Please bring a backpack with a 6.5-gallon (25-liter) capacity to carry your allocated climbing gear, as well as your personal items.
The 09.-mile (1.4-km) walk to the summit can take up to one hour from the parking lot. When you reach the first climbing site, take a breather while your guide sets up your climbing ropes. Once your safety briefing is completed, find a climbing partner and get going. There will be different grades of difficulty set up for you to choose from. Your guide will most likely shift sites during the day, and you'll climb until about 1:30pm, at which point your guide will dismantle the equipment, and you'll all carry the gear back to the car park, arriving around 2:30pm.
This adventure in the eucalyptus forest of the Glass House Mountains is designed for anyone with a sense of adventure or love of the outdoors. With its unusual array of domes, cones, and spires—the result of volcanic activity millions of years ago—the mountain range is an outstanding climbing location.
