Summary

A new sport-climbing crag up steep white and orange sandstone. It is full of features and up to 40 metres in height. French translation of Cinderella is "of the ashes"

Description

Crag gets morning sun, and shade after about 1pm. The base of the crag is a bit of a dustbowl - bring a large rope tarp. The crag also appears to heavily seep after extended rain.

Access issues

None… Until they lock the fire road gate then expect a long walk or bike ride. Keep a low profile when drilling, there are some people lurking around the fire trails on the weekends. Well maintained fire trail access is fine with a 2WD

Approach

From Sydney, get on the M31 freeway and head south, take the Bargo exit. From here locate Avon Dam road and follow this for 3.5 km, cross the railway and turn left into Bargo River Rd and continue for a further 4.5km until your speedo reads 8km. I think the road changes its name somewhere along this section of road to Wilson Drive Reset your speedo here at house number 392.

0.1km - Cross the railway

0.8km - Pass thru open gate and continue along dirt fire trail for 4.5km (just under 10min drive)

5.3km - Arrive at commuter car park

From here its an easy 2 min walk to the crag (follow the grey tape in the trees)

Where to stay

Camping is possible at the top of the crag.
