Description

Excellent bouldering destination with a reputation for highballs with sketchy landings. In reality, there's a lot of safer stuff here too, including a few Sydney classics.

Useful Info: Please avoid excessive erosion of the access routes and the base of the walls. You don't want the top outs to get any higher, surely? Information largely drawn from Peter Balint's excellent 'Sydney Bouldering' guide. Buy one if you don't have one!

Approach

Find Boundary Road in North Epping. At the end of this, past the bowling club, is a turning circle and obvious fire trail. Follow this trail into the bush passing whale rock and continuing the way that you were heading, not down the track on the left. After about five minutes or so you cross the creek. There is an access route here, but better to go from the second creek crossing directly up to emerge in 'The Courtyard'. A little further along is the obvious approach up to the roof-capped 'Sinatra Wall'.
