Description

This is the broken cliffline with plenty of rock 300m right (south west) of Narrabeen Steep Side, clearly visible from both the road and Steep Side.

Approach

Access is from the south end of Steep Side (walk right from Septic Penguins) - don't go through the swamp from the road! Stay below the cliff line following the track from SP. The track follows a faint path that goes through some small overhung caves. You will eventually make it round to a big flat slab, scramble up over this and the crag is just on the other side.

Start directly under first roof, go around right side of roof. Gain good break traverse left, then straight up under second roof on chicken heads. Go right then stem your way up to ledge. Have quick breather before stepping left and up over buldge for an exciting finish to anchors.
