The magnificent Taipan Wall

Description 

This amazing area is home to the world class Taipan Wall as well as lesser known walls including the Central Buttress, the Grey and Green Walls, the Lower Taipan Wall, and various bouldering areas.

Getting There 

Park at the Mt. Zero picnic area and hike the obvious trail across the Flat Rock and into the Amphitheater. This trail also leads to the summit of Mount Stapylton, but the hike for most of the climbing ranges from 15-45 minutes depending on the area.

Described by the local guidebook as, 'the premier pitch in the country', Serpentine's 2nd pitch is an absolute must-do if you climb at the grade.
