A Crag Guide gives an extensive view of all sub areas and climbs at a point in the index. It shows a snapshot of the index heirachy, up to 300 climbs (or areas) on a single web page. It shows selected comments climbers have made on a recently submitted ascent.

At a minor crag level this should be suitable for printing and taking with you on a climbing trip as an adjunct to your guidebook.

1. Hartley 242 routes in Crag

Summary:
JFMAMJJASOND
seasonality
Unknown, Trad and other styles

Long/Lat: 150.252242, -33.523912

Description:© (secretary)

A small crag on the very edge of the back side of the Blue Mountains. By far the best thing about this crag is the 5 metre walk in. If your ethics preclude reinforcement and/or enhancement then perhaps you shouldn't visit here. [Or, abandoning evasive euphemisms in favour of plain speaking, if you don't like bolted-on gym holds, blank sections with glued on rocks surrounded by ugly glue smears, blatantly chipped holds, and bolted splitter cracks, then you won't like what's been done to this crag]. If you do visit, enjoy it just for the climbing.

Sunny until 12-1pm, i.e. good before midday in the winter and on summer afternoons – although it can get a little muggy at times.

There is a motley collection of old carrots further to the right of 'Gas Leak Slab'. Take care as this gear has not been assessed and probably never will be.

Access Issues: inherited from Blue Mountains

The Blue Mountains are a World Heritage listed area. The Grose Valley, the cliffs around Katoomba and much of the Narrow Neck peninsula are part of the Blue Mountains National Park which is managed by the NPWS. The Western Escarpment - where most of the climbing is - is Crown Land managed by the BMCC. While the NPWS Plan of Management nominates several locations in the National Park where rock climbing is deemed appropriate, the majority of the climbing remains unacknowledged. To maintain access our best approach is to 'Respect Native Habitat, Tread Softly and Leave No Trace'.

Approach:© (secretary)

From the traffic lights in Mt Vic, drive north along the Darling Causeway, and after 6.1km turn left onto 'Hartley' Vale Rd. If coming via Bell, head south along the Darling Causeway then after 3.9km turn right onto 'Hartley' Vale Rd. Drive cautiously down here, the road is very narrow and there's a few blind corners where you wouldn't want to meet someone coming the other way. The crag is 1.1km down the hill on the left, immediately above the road. It is possible to park 2 cars in the small alcove at the base of the crag. However if you have a bigger party there is a small parking area about 100m before the crag, and more parking 100m downhill and beyond. Watch out for bicycles when opening your car doors!

Ethic: inherited from Blue Mountains

Mixed-climbing on gear and bolts has generally been the rule in the Blueies. Please try to use available natural gear where possible, and do not bolt cracks or potential trad climbs.

Because of the softness of Blue Mountains sandstone, bolting should only be done by those with a solid knowledge of glue-in equipping. A recent fatality serves as a reminder that this is not an area to experiment with bolting.

If you do need to top rope, please do it through your own gear as the wear on the anchors is both difficult and expensive to maintain.

It would be appreciated if brushing of holds becomes part of your climbing routine - do it with a soft bristled brush and never a steel brush!

The removal of vegetation - both from the cliff bases and the climbs - is not seen as beneficial to aesthetics of the environment nor to our access to it. Generally it's best to leave all this sort of stuff to the local climbers.

1.5. Kangaroo Corner 49 routes in Crag

Summary:
Trad and Unknown

Long/Lat: 150.265398, -33.516064

Description:© (secretary)

Keeping up the apparent Blue Mountains traditions of carrots, mixed climbing and tree belays!

Useful Info: A Special Plea:- This is not parkland and is surrounded by private property, so it would be beneficial to all if we treat the area with care and consideration.

Approach:© (secretary)

Turn left off Darling Causeway approximately 1.3kms after 'Hartley' Vale Rd (heading toward Bell). Follow track for 200m then left up hill to large clearing and dumped rubbish. At clump of 7 eucalypts turn right (several tracks lead out of the clearing) and follow track to obvious parking bay, for 2 or 3 cars.

Walk down track and straight ahead to rock ledges and top of 'Ivory Tower' Buttress. The cairn on the left before the bottom of the track heading to the 'Ivory Tower' takes you to the abseil point above the Black Slab. You will require two ropes to abseil!

There is also an abseil point above Aerial Manouveres from which it is possible to reach the ground on a single rope via a second abseil from a tree.

To walk down, follow the cliff edge around to the right (facing out) approaching the waterfall. Turn left at small cairn – there is an awkward section involving a 3m down climb. There is a track of sorts around the base of the cliff.
