  <header name="Doctors Rocks" id="1" walk="5" sun="Morning" rock="Volcanic" acknowledgement="By Moses Bassett and Ben Young" intro="Warning-These climbs are all quite new, lose in spots and don&apos;t get much traffic so helmets are highly recommended. &lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;Local people have been climbing and fishing from the rocks at Doctors rocks forever and there is quite a good selection of bouldering to be had. In an attempt to get as much out of the area as possible a few short sport routes have been added. There is never going to be any mega classics but if you are in the area and want to get on a rope they are worth a go. The climbing is mainly vertical to less than, face climbing. &lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;There is currently 7 bolted routes and we are in the process of taking photos and writing them up. " history="Bolting was begun in early 2017 by Ben Young and Moses Bassett. " access="Doctors Rocks is well signposted and is just before the first turn-off to Wynyard if coming from Burnie. Access is easiest walking around the headland from the Burnie side.There is a gate to cross over the train track about 50m closer to Wynyard from the gravel parking area. Follow the well worn path and you will first pass the Mordor bouldering area and after scrambling over a boulder up against the headland you will be at Goodies Buttress. Continue your way around the headland and you will find the other three. " camping="" autonumber="false"/>
