The boulders and wall generally face East so they receive plenty of sun until the afternoon. The rock is good old Sydney sandstone and some problems are quite sharp but it is generally quite solid. Beware after the rain though ...
Only the most classic, obvious problems are described and they don't adhere to any rules or eliminations.
Take the M1 freeway north towards Newcastle for about 10km until you reach the Berowra exit on the left. At the top of the exit ramp at the T intersection go right and then down the big loop (Windy Banks Interchange) back on to the freeway heading south. After a couple of hundred metres you'll see a little dirt road on the left (just before the second small road cutting) and you turn into there and park off to the side. Follow the track east for about 1km taking the left hand forks whenever you have to until you hit a set of boulders and small cliffs that basically face east. This is it. To the north are some more slabby areas.
Originally discovered by Gavin Portier and David James in 1996, but it was dismissed as another "almost crag". Revisitted again in winter 1997 and suddenly some lines had appeared. They thought it would be good for some easy high-ball problems and maybe the odd 5 or 6. They soon discovered they were wrong with problems ranging from V0 to V9 being added, with harder lines yet to come.
