From the bottom of the rap station head down the path and turn (stage) left. After about 50m there is a track leading up to the (stage) left side of the cliff. Routes start a few meters off the ground after climbing up rungs through seeping rock. A stick clip will also help you. Don't let the bottom of these routes deter you from trying them. They are set to be mega classics!! Take care when walking around the base of this cliff. Try your best to be as low impact as possible on the vegetation and watch your footing. There are some potholes in the veg that could bring you unstuck quickly!

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'. Do not cut flora and keep any tracks and infrastructure as minimal as possible.

Practically all crags are either in National Park or in council reserve: dog owners are reminded that dogs are not allowed in National Parks at any time and fines have been issued, while for crags on council reserve the BMCC leash law requires that dogs be on-leash.

Ethic inherited from Elphinstone

There are many CLOSED PROJECTS in both sectors. As a matter of respect, stay off them unless you have permission from the person who bolted it or the project becomes listed as open.

Amanda closed project. Starts up SATA and after a couple bolts head out left through the 2 high orange streaks

Batman or make yourself a Bachar ladder to reach the start. Then up a couple of the ladder rungs to get into the proper rock. Blast straight up and up and up to get yourself under the high bulge. Some tricky moves manoeuvring around the bulge then out left through the roof to turn the lip and climb the last few meters up the slab to high anchor. May be easier?

FFA: Tom O'Halloran, 2013

Matt 'Slow Banga' Norgrove closed project. Light your match and charge on up the middle of the wall and out the lip before you run out of paper to burn

Tom O'Halloran closed project. Starts the same as House fire for the first 5m then sweeps to the right through a shallow groove, up on some bubbly flakes and tends slighty right again up on the high pocketed prow to finish on the right of the roof

PROJ bolts leading out lip of roof. harder finish for SATA and HFITOD
