Merino or Bailiff

Flock hill is closed for lambing again this year from 1 Nov until 25 Dec.

The officer in charge of a Merindad was called Merino which may be related or not to the sheep race of the same name. Much like our bailiff. So don't get caught with the sheep this spring.

Dogs and Anonymous Climbers

Too spent to carry your mat up and down the hill every day? Yeah, right!

A climbing mat has been found anchored by padlock to a boulder. This is not a good look. Neither is poo and toilet paper. Dogs and anonymous climbers do not belong there either.

Let Mark F. know your plans, leave the dog at home and get some toilet training before showing your sorry face up the hill again.

Don't listen to sneaker pimps. Ask for permission before you climb.

Send Then Climb

Flock Hill Limited

Notice to Climbers seeking access to Flock Hill Station

There has recently been confusion and negative publicity with regard to access for climbers wishing to boulder on Flock Hill.

Because of large numbers of people trespassing on the property, as well as issues of safety, we have decided that as of now, climbers wishing to access Flock Hill will need to contact us at in advance of their visit. A safety notice will be issued and the attached form should be returned and a copy of it carried as proof of permission.

Sometime around March of next year we will establish a visitor centre at Flock Hill Lodge where climbers can obtain permission, receive the safety notice and sign in and out in the visitor log. This will simplify matters and allow for spontaneous visits rather than having to seek permission well in advance.

Finally we are asking that permanent climbing bolts are not drilled into the rocks and that a total fire and smoking ban is observed. No dogs or vehicles are allowed for obvious reasons.
