Access to climbing areas
The CCA has spent considerable time and effort preparing submissions to maintain access to climbing areas.
Ginninderra Falls was 'The ACT's answer to Hanging Rock', near the city, with a long history of climbing and hordes of tourists. Climbing began at Ginninderra Falls in 1967, with members of the ANU Climbing Club showing interest in the area. Technically in New South Wales, this area was enjoyed by many Canberra climbers, particularly northsiders who have few other crags nearby. The area was closed in the mid 2000s.
Since then, members of the Murrumbidgee - Ginninderra Gorges National Park Community Group have put together a proposal for an area which includes Ginninderra Falls to be made a national park. The Canberra Climbers' Association will be watching the progress of this proposal with interest. Details of the proposal can be found at the following page.
