  • Description 

    This area is hard to get to and only has a handful of worthwhile problems, they are however very worth while. After a steep 20 minute hike uphill one will be rewarded with the ambiance of being higher than any of the surrounding climbs in a spectacular setting. More importantly THE PROBLEM, The Great Barrier Rock!!!

    Getting There 

    From Main Wall of Old Castle, cirque is found just above The Gorilla Head Buttress. Great Barrier Rock is found by heading west along the ridge line 150-200 yards. It is the lone overhanging boulder just above grey chossy formation/cliff/cave. It usually has a community crash pad stashed under its overhung north side.
