As the old saying goes "Friends don't let friends climb slab". Wrong! Slab is amazing to climb on and with only one other slab bouldering crag in Sydney (Pearl Bay) this crag will certainly rival it!
A slathering of slab! Who knew there was some highball slab bouldering right on the harbour!?
Whether you want the balancing pinches and toe holds of "The First Cuts The Deepest" or some serious core strength and laybacking in "Oh Man, Oh Man, Oh Man", Harbour Side Slabs can give you a satisfying experience!
All Climbs are open with no access problems (just inquisitive locals).
Driving down Kurraba Rd it becomes one way (a giant loop). After Baden Rd head off to the left and park by the lookout that faces towards the Harbour.
Walk to the left of where you parked, down the gravel/tar path towards the water.
With the water on your left and a cliff line developing on your right you'll come to slab city before you know it.
All routes are described from right to left onb the cliff line.
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 in June 2013 by Ranger Dave.
After this location was spotted from across the cove, Ranger Dave couldn't resist hunting down these cliffs for some goodies!
The first documented climbs here were done on a drizzly day equipped with Steel Cap Boots - true to the history of this Sandstone Quarry!
Cleaned, gardened and sent by Ranger Dave and Brendon Flanagan.
This crag is a product of the Great Bouldering Boom!
