Frog Buttress 22 Aug 2014 to 31 Aug 2014 Top
Boonah, Qld
Hywel Rowlands

With a reputation for being the best crack climbing crag in Australia, Frog Buttress is a trad climbing venue with a conveniently located campground. Given its location and respective climate, August is a great time of year to climb in Queensland.

Those interested will need to be self-sufficient in terms of climbing and travel although we will seek to group and share car rentals as and if required.

Please email Hywel should you be interested in the trip.
