Made from a similar mould as She-Oak Wall at Lindfield Rocks, this amazing cliff offers a good selection of high ball V1's, V2's and a fantastic V3 traverse. The first 2 high balls can be topped out but the remainder are all down climbs due to risky exits. Don't risk the top outs, down climb and get more bang for your buck. All problems have brilliant holds, some of them you simply have to look for.
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. Please don't jeopardise future attempts to restore access by flouting the ban.©
The first two problems are top outs but the remainding problems are all down climbs due to poor top outs. Down climb and get more bang for your buck.
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.
Sir Brendon Flanagan and the Czech Princess Radka took on the challanges of the high balls located on this amazing face. There were no fairy tales created at the crag this day but there was an amazing sun set in the west. Photos were taken of the of it but justice was not done!
This crag is a product of the great bouldering boom!
Chalk up, climb on and live the dream!
