CLIFF UPDATE - July 14 - The cliff top has received a thorough clean by Ranger Dave and Michal Lisa, with all loose rocks removed, anchor points checked and cleared and the bottom of the cliff cleaned up some more.
A refined description of each climb to come!
A collection of easy climbs that are great for beginners wanting to practice unique skills. This cliff holds a layback flake, pinchy slab, vertical crack and two over hang climbs, making a great spot for training
All climbs are Top Rope with Natural Anchors
Best enjoyed in the afternoon as it is a north facing cliff.
Also check out the bouldering further west along the cliff line.
As you enter into Harold Reid Reserve, drive up the road passing cliffs either side of the car and pull over into the first parking bay on your left. The cliff line is directly in front of you.
From the top of the cliff there are two options. To the right as you face the cliff edge is the easiest descent via a tight gully. The left is in development and is unstable until cleaned
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.
Discovered by Ranger Dave and Michal Lisa Archer in early 2013 during the Great Bouldering Boom. Looking at the amazing array of climb types it became quickly apparent that this would be a perfect place to take new climbers - especially once bolted, for lead climb training!
