Walk up through the cave and rap/descend from anchors down to the ledge (easy grade 8 climb out)
- Access Issues: inherited from Bulahdelah
Major access issues in all areas at present. Avoiding the area is best strategy at present(dec 2015) or risk inflaming the situation. A landowner to the north is alleging climbers have damaged his property. Avoid private landholdings and do not trespass.
- 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.
Starting from the double bolts at the right hand end of cave, go straight up staying left of face till the wall gets to steep then traverse onto the face out right and up to lower offs.
