A 15m wall with 5 fun sport routes. Faces west so get the sun from about midday. Is a good crag to take kids as it is pretty flat at the base.
It has the same parking area as the God Zone. Access from the top (2wd) From Coffs Harbour go out along Coramba Road to Nana Glen. At Nana Glen turn right onto Bucca Rd. Continue on across a bridge until you come to a road on the left called Morrows Rd. Turn Left into Morrows Road and set your odomenter to zero:
- - Follow Morrows Rd for a few kilometers where it forks.
- - Take the right fork across the railway line. The road now becomes Waihou Rd. Keep going up zig zags until you reach Sherwood Forest Rd
- - Turn a sharp left onto Sherwood Forest Road. Continue along Sherwood Forest Road until you reach Conglomerate Trail (sign posted) on your right.
Drive Past Communications tower and the road heads down and right.
you will come to a creek crossing. park here. you can drive through easily with a 4wd but the water is deepeer than it first looks.
Alternatively you can access Sherwood Forest Road from Bucca road 5km from Pacific Hwy and it is in better condition than waihoo road at the moment.
Walk up the road slightly then follow the ridge upward for about 100m to a small rocky boulder. At the boulder head over the ridge and contour around for another 50m and until you can see the prominent arete next to caught on film.
5 minutes walk from car, slightly uphill
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.
