A Crag Guide gives an extensive view of all sub areas and climbs at a point in the index. It shows a snapshot of the index heirachy, up to 300 climbs (or areas) on a single web page. It shows selected comments climbers have made on a recently submitted ascent.

At a minor crag level this should be suitable for printing and taking with you on a climbing trip as an adjunct to your guidebook.

1. West Roseville 7 routes in Crag

Sport, Top Rope and other styles

Long/Lat: 151.164860, -33.790643


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.

Ethic: inherited from North Shore

Respecting the enviroment and keeping crags clean will maintain a healthy and important relationship between the climbing community, local councils and National Parks. Carry out what you take in and enjoy what the North Shore has to offer.

If you come across an area that is being developed or you think could be under development, please show all due respect to the developers and do not climb the projects listed on thecrag.com.

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.
