Description

The overhang just below The Underverse Next Door.

Approach

Hidden from view, so could it be considered the best kept secret of the crag? Try it and you decide! From The Underverse Next Door take about 8 steps towards the water. Youll either be standing on top of it or it'll be to your right.

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.

History

Many years ago someone decided that this piece of rock was a bit of a joke. I beg to differ. On a windy afternoon with tall ships on the harbour Brendon Flanagan played around on this fun piece of rock. Don't be offended if you discover the rock laughing at you!

This crag is a product of the great bouldering boom!

Chalk up, climb on and live the dream!

Starting on the far right hand side, keep your feet high and traverse as far left as you can. Vertically challanged people will have to be creative with this problem. Tall people can use their tippy toes.
