A Crag Guide gives an extensive view of all sub areas and climbs at a point in the index. It shows a snapshot of the index heirachy, up to 300 climbs (or areas) on a single web page. It shows selected comments climbers have made on a recently submitted ascent.

At a minor crag level this should be suitable for printing and taking with you on a climbing trip as an adjunct to your guidebook.

1. Trackside 18 routes in Cliff

All Boulder
Approach:© (adRock)

From corner of Blaxland and Terrace Roads in West Killara, walk down firetrail (towards the Big Pump), after about 50m take the obvious track on your left. Walk about 200-300m, through caves and under a waterfall, and then a rather inauspicious boulder sits in the middle of the track.

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.

Yet another problem that's been vandalised. The starting flake is bit smaller than it used to be. Jump from the starting flake to the next flake and then straight up.
