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.

Access Issues: inherited from Bulahdelah

Parking can get a bit congested at times so it is best to carpool if possile. If heading to the Goat Cave then do not drive in or park in front of the gate as the neighbouring landowner has indicated he doesn't want cars blocking access to his property. Park to the side of the gate and walk the fire trail.

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.

Up crack, step left around arete to anchors when it peters out. Trad

FA: J Wilde

15Trad 12m Vanessa Wills 2 years ago

Not great, green in many respects.

Mixed gear, continue right from the top of fern crack

20Trad 25m Vanessa Wills 2 years ago

20Sport 15m Jimmy Mullan 12 months ago

6 Pitch Two

From the shared anchors of Johnny 1 or Johnny 2 continue up and step left at roof past 4 more bolts to fixed carabiners at DBB

18Sport 10m Jimmy Mullan 12 months ago

A waste of time. Look for the spray painted bolts. Better yet, don't.

Vanessa Wills 2 years ago

Nice exposure, a 60m rope gets you down easily

7 Mud and Munters

Same start as Johnny2 but go left after first bolt. Continue past RB and FH at 18 m- not the anchor through overlap and traverse right to join anchor of Pitch 2. Best if someone seconds to clean.

FA: John Wilde, 2012

19Sport 25m, 12 Vanessa Wills 2 years ago
