Description

A tall prominent overhang with two established highball problems so far

Approach

About 30m north of the Northern Rooves boulders, along the same contour.

Ethic inherited from Coffs Harbour

Climbing ethics in the Coffs Harbour area generally follow those of the rest of Australia. The sandstone often offers solid, natural protection which should be used instead of fixed protection where possible. Tape, ribbon, or something similar tied around a bolt or inserted in the route will indicate an incomplete route. Please respect these routes as projects until the marker is removed.

History

Brendan Heywood snagged the FA of the left hand route in the mid 2000s. Rhys Van Gastel did the FA of the harder right hand route some time later.
