From the mountain carpark take the lookout track. This ascends some stairs at a water tower past a rusty boiler and then along a flat track. All the pinnacles are downhill to the left of the track- the town side. The first small pinnacle is 20 metres along. The remainder are after you walk under a cliff on the right of the track. Most climbs are on the town facing side and get afternoon sun. Climbs for each pinnacle are described from carpark side towards lookout side of pinnacle.

Access issues inherited from Bulahdelah

Major access issues in all areas at present. Walking through the state forest is fine but DO NOT CLIMB south of the lookout. Permission has been granted by the new landholders to climb on the northern part of the cliffs. This includes the Beehive, Fiegs overhang and the Cave. However getting there is tricky. A landowner to the north is alleging climbers have damaged his property. Do not cross at the water reservoir or trespass on the northwest side of the ridge. Parking down near the golf course, then skirting the southern boundary of the golf course will keep you on the land we have permission to access. Hopefully a map of this will appear soon.

Ethic inherited from Bulahdelah

If you intend to bolt then it is best to speak to the locals as they will inform you of the do's and don'ts of bolting in the area.
