Fun Parlour

  - 02 Mid North Coast (inc Coffs Harbour)
    - Sherwood State Forest Sandstone
This area is unlocked for editing, and its routes are unlocked. Route additions are allowed.
Description:The Fun Parlour is not a big cliff, being only 8 to 10 meters high. But the lines, cracks and walls are a lot of fun. The cliff is situated just out of Glenreagh, which is approximately half way (half an hour's drive) from Grafton and Coffs Harbour on the inland road parallel to the Pacific Highway
Location:About the middle of Glenreagh a road called Upper Corindi Road heads off across a bridge spanning the Orara river. Follow this across the railway line, then hard left to Middle Creek . The parking for Fun Parlour is 500m past the bridge over Middle Creek on the Southern side of the road. Using the Woolgoolga map 9537-4-N, an estimate of the map reference is 013 786. The crag is the upper cliff line on the right of the road. The crag is almost out of sight from the road, follow a trail diagonally up and to the left for about 150m. When you reach the crag you are near the left hand side. Climbs are listed from left to right as you face the cliff.
