One of Sydney's smaller and less-intrepid sea cliffs, 'Clovelly' has a range of (often-steep)climbing. The bolts are generally good (by sea-cliff standards) and the rock is not too friable.
Access issues inherited from Eastern Suburbs
Most crags have easy parking with only a short distance to walk, scramble or abseil into the crag.
On the northern side of 'Clovelly' Beach, beneath Burrows Park. Park in Ocean St, opposite the park, or catch a 339 or 340 bus to the beach and walk up the hill. There is a descent gully at the southern end of the crag (near the northern point of 'Clovelly' Bay), however it is hard to get to the northern climbs, such as 'Steep', from here when the sea is rough or the tide is high. The easiset approch for these climbs is to abseil of the large white survey marker. This is just visible from the road, on the far (sea) side of Burrows Park.
