VR Climbing Guidebook for Boolijah & Tianjara
This guidebook provides information for climbs at Monkey Gum Fire Trail & Tianjara Falls
Monkey Gum Fire Trail
Similarly to Belah Crag this area also features 3 sport routes, mostly vertical, and all are almost 20 metres high, so a 50 metre rope would be enough for this place. Be aware that if you want to visit this place, you either have a 4WD or need to walk for at least 3 km. I think in terms of complexity, this would be the most complex access for car in the climbing areas located in Braidwood road, I attempted to navigate this road with my car and end up bogged down. Thankfully the people from the Shoalhaven 4WD club lent me a hand and got me out of there.
The ideal season to visit this place would be between Apr-Nov, although in this place the sunlight does not hit directly.
Special things to look for in the Monkey Gum Fire Trail area:
Views from the top of the cliff
The embedded ball in the wall

So far Tianjara Falls is the last place to visit for climbing when travelling along Braidwood RD. Nerriga is the only climbing option beyond this point. This place is one of the biggest climbing locations in Shoalhaven with over 200 Sport climbs on offer. Grades range from 10-26 and can go as high as 40M. You will need a 70M rope to give yourself complete access to all the climbing on offer however there is a lot here at your fingertips if you only have a 50M rope.The ideal season to visit is April-Oct. Summer can be hot, however in the following areas the sun does not hit directly due to the foliage of the trees:
Chunders Glenn lower wall
Black snake buttress
Tianjara has the following special treats that you should look for:
The views from the top of the route The Horse has Bolted,
The Waterfall and other cascades that formed in high rainy season,
The access to some of the areas is a fun adventure, like getting from Chunders Glenn to Bundy’s Bar and Grill area
Peace and tranquility.
