    No.

    It is upstream of a waterfall and canyon, as per Gloucester, but not in the Barrington or Gloucester tops region.

    That would be near Walcha. That really big waterfall and canyon downstream, is called Apsley Falls. No idea what that little cascade is called.

    Yes.

    It's only a kilometre and a half off a 2WD dirt road. Hardly backcountry.

    There can’t be a piece of granite in NSW that either of you haven’t climbed!

    Hopefully I don't have my rock types too wrong. :)

    There is definitely some sandstone and conglomerate remnant capping rock nearby as well.

    Yes. And to move things along, the waterfall downstream is Kanangra Falls, pictured here. Only the top 100m or so is visible here.

    SB, your go.

    Yes. The water level was low in the garden of eden so we were able to walk around to the falls on the rock ledge.

    Haha but no.

    The exit involved a slightly tight bit where leader and second needed to remove harnesses and tie a bowline round the waist, whilst wedged in above the crux with feet kicking in space.
