History

View historical timeline

The North Shore has seen some amazing climbs and problems put up over time with a slump in its development during the early 2000s.

However that all changed with the turn of the decade seeing the start of the Great Bouldering Boom with the North Shore getting some much needed development attention by a group of enthusiastic lovers of rock.

The word on the street is that this attention will only increase as the years go by, making the North Shore a strong epicenter of climbing in Sydney
