Description

A leafy and uncrowded little crag that is probably marginally cooler in summer than Southwest Barrenjoey. Worth a look in if you're feeling intrepid.

Access issues

Since the crag is directly above a track used by hundreds of tourists bucketlisting Barrenjoey, it might be best to leave this crag and its rusted bolt ladder in the history books.

Approach

To get there, park as for Southwest Barrenjoey and walk north along Station Beach. From the northern end of Station Beach, take the main lighthouse track then turn right at the signposted "Smugglers Track". A short walk leads to a rotting bolt ladder which marks the start of the crag.
