Another sector but with some interesting features and decent climbing on a wide ledge. The routes are short sport routes, and not much shorter bouldering, often with heady, slopey top outs as their crux. They wouldn't feel so difficult closer to the ground! Unlikely to be popular with gym junkies! Rock quality is improving with traffic.
From the car park outside the reserve walk right past the main area until just before the speed hump toward the lookout at the end. Of from the end, walk left down hill until until the first speed bump. A faint track drops down steeply, then left (facing out) around the base of a gradually growing cliff line with some bouldering before the longer routes. Follow this along the ledge and around the corner to the main cliff line.
There is also an access gully at the far right of the crag (looking in). Beware the 6m drop below the left hand access route above the Lower Cliff.
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.
There's certainly been some ascents in the past (old carrot bolts). Any history is unknown to the developer who heard about the crag from a friend.
