A North Shore zero access sport crag! Has a number of cool little lines, including a great little 24 that busts through the roof! To get to the crag, park on the left at the corner of Shirley Rd and Valleyview Close in Roseville and find a faint track between number 130 and a light pole.  Down past a boulder on your left, then veer right then back left to the top of the cliff (you'll come out directly above Thunderbird).  At this point you're still no more than 100m from the houses! Descend to the right (chopped steps, boulder scramble). Apparently some mid ranged bouldering off to the right (not checked) or bash over to the left or find the faint track amongst the undergrowth to find yourself underneath the big overhang. Thunderbird starts here.   The crag is within the Lane Cove National Park. Climbs described left to right.

A great little climb in the backyard of the North Shore!

Start: Marked "24 Thunderbird" . The first climb you reach after the walk down. Far left end of the crag

Over chossy undercut onto balancy, slabby face (1 carrot, 1 FH) up to old sling on RB (would not trust sling, take a longer draw) and out through roof past two RB's. Lower off last 2 bolts and clean draws from top.

Start 2m to the right of 'Thunderbird', up the obvious chossy corner crack. The crack narrows from hands to thin fingers up to underside of roof. Follow the line of 3 RB's through the roof out to end. Back climb to clean.

Up the crack as for 'Thunderbird Variant' then trend away from the slab out into the roof following a line of bolts, finishing at the lip. Powerful moves.
