Walk | A bushwalk of any kind short or long(Fully Booked - Ask leader about waiting list) I've wanted to climb the Citadel for a long time and to explore the area to the north, around the Ultimate View and the nearby clifflines/slots and terraces.

The walk is generally a grade 5, but for those who want to climb the Citadel, it will be a grade 6. Rock scrambling and off-track walking.
