Description

An array of easy sport and trad climbs. Great for the beginner wanting to practice their leading skills. Climbs have top rope access as well.

This cliff has a layback crack, pinchy slab, a vertical crack and two over hanging climbs, making it the perfect spot for anyone's training.

The name of this crag stems from The Derek Zoolander School for Kids Who Can't Read Good and Want to Do Other Stuff Good Too.

Approach

Entering Harold Reid Reserve drive up the road, through the cutting. Pull over into the first parking bay on your left where the picnic table is. The cliff line is 30 seconds directly in front of you.

Descent notes

Once you break through the tree line you'll notice down to your right an access gully with an access rope attached to a chockstone.

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.
