Be sensible.

Approach

Slab World is located in the Lower Blue Mountain's near Springwood.

Head to Martins lookout on Farms road at Springwood. Park the car at end of dirt track and head towards the lookout. 20 metres before the lookout, turn right along the path. Continue along path for about 15 minutes heading into valley. After a steepish section and two switchbacks in the path, a large orange cave will be seen on the left. Head to cave and follow the cliff line along for roughly 200 metres. 'Spider' Wall is up high on a ledge, while the main wall is 100 metres further along.

There is plenty of rock on broken down cliffs for further development should anyone be keen and not mind the walk.

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.
