Faraway Wall


One of the best areas at MtK with good rock to 20m height. Also features a great outlook over 'Berowra' creek.

From Motocross wall, opposite Dinosaurs Must Die, head downhill on a cairned path. Halfway down you will pass a large boulder on your left. At the cliff top turn left until you hit some rock ramps that will bring you to the right hand end of the climbing area.
