Ever seen so much countertop in one place? Yeah, me neither. On our spontaneous weekend, one of the things we crossed off the my my list was hiking Bald Rock.
It was straight up and down, but still manageable to hike. Maybe not as steep as the picture above shows, look below, I could stand up. The easiest way to go up was backwards though.
This huge rock of granite is located just across the border into New South Whales in an area called Boonoo Boonoo, right outside of the town of Tenterfield. The national park continues into Queensland, and is called Giraween. Giraween is on the list, but we didn't have time to fit it in. The road to get there is really interesting with WWII tank traps and overhang caves that were used by people long time ago. This rock is about 200 meters above the land and is the size of 750 meters by 500 meters. It is one of the largest granite rocks in the world.
When you leave the car park you have to decide, easy or hard. As you can tell from the pictures we chose hard. It was so much fun though.
That picture kind of gives you a reference as to how big everything really was.
What is one of your favorite rock climbs/hikes?
