Although there is no shortage of peaks and cliffs in Queensland, itís still something of a challenge for climbers to find rock faces that are not overgrown with lush foliage or too exposed to the fierce tropical sun. Queenslandís best known rock formations are the Glasshouse Mountains, a group of volcanic plugs that rises dramatically from the lowlands bordering the Sunshine coast. Although many of the cliff faces here are loose and therefore dangerous, there are several safe but challenging climbs. The most popular climbing area in Queensland, however, is Frog Buttress, a relatively small cliff near Boonah, south of Ipswich. For less strenuous outings, Brisbane-base climbers travel to the granite boulders and slabs of Girraween National Park near the New South Wales Border. In the north of the state, Townsville climbers have established many exciting routes on nearby Mount Stuart.
