Access issues inherited from Balls Head
Climbing of any kind (including bouldering) has been banned by North Sydney City Council throughout the Ball's Head Reserve since 1996. If you climbing here you are breaking the law, and risk being prosecuted. Don't do it.

Ethic inherited from When Crags Collide
When Crags Collide is a bolt free environment. Bolting will not be tolerated by the developers and more than likely North Sydney Council as well.
When Crags Collide was developed as pure bouldering for the love of bouldering. The developers want it to remain this way.
It may be tempting to bolt the highballs or even put some sneaky carrots in at the top. The developers did discuss this as an option and decided seeing this is a popular look out, and the base is on a very popular hiking track, that bolts would only detract from the natural beauty of the area that non-climbers come to enjoy.
There's one rusted forgotten bolt at the top of Lindfield With A Water View from several decades ago. This is a mark oh history but if any other bolts are found here they'll be chopped by either the developers or once again, more than likely North Sydney Council.
The Czech Princess Radka had been climbing for many years but only now discovering the magic of bouldering with an evident addiction setting in. Only having been bouldering for 2 weeks (and quite good at it as well), Radka was still grasping the concept of appropriate bouldering grades. Sir Brendon Flanagan stepped in to help, preventing future boulderers from being sandbaged at this crag.
This crag is a product of the Great Bouldering Boom!
Chalk up, climb on and live the dream!
