Etiquette and Access

When bouldering in the gorge try to set the example of an ideal park visitor. Practice Leave No Trace ethics, no littering and pack out other trash you find. Refrain from excessive yelling and loud music. Remove tick marks and minimize chalk mess. Avoid bouldering when the rock is wet.

While there are minimal amounts of maintained trails to bouldering areas, stay on the trafficked footpaths outlined in this guide.
