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.

1. Skip's Highball 2 routes in Boulder

All Boulder

A tall prominent overhang with two established highball problems so far


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.


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.
