Summary

Limestone gorge two hours from Sydney, three from the blue mountains. Need I say more. Only 1.5hrs from Canberra

Description

Up to 300m limestone multi-pitch climbing with single pitch sport and bouldering at the base. Some shorter climbs are on scattered crags at the top of the gorge (Reflux Crag, SRC Crag). Rap-in, climb-out area at Cooee Point.

Access issues

The park is occasionally closed for feral animal control. Check here: http://www.nationalparks.nsw.gov.au/alert/state-alerts

Approach

For the main deal, drive to the end of "The Lookdown road" and park 200m before the lookout at the toilets. Take the walking track called "Red track" around the gate, on the left as you come in. Then 30-40 min steep walk down into the slot canyon. (Check the map at the carpark to make sure your heading the right way down the 5hr "Red track" circuit.)

Cooee Point, Reflux Crag and SRC Crag are a 15 minute walk from the lookout, if you find your way OK.

Where to stay

Camping on site. $10 per night plus $7 per car.
