Large sandstone boulders and butresses in a small but dense jungle-esque valley. Recently discovered, alot of cleaning required but alot of potential. Keeps relatively cool in the heat.

Access issues inherited from Illawarra

All crags are within a 20 minute walk from the road head. Most are less than 10.


Head out of North Nowra along Illaroo Road. When you get to Bangalee, take a left into Koloona Drive. Keep driving for about 2.5km until the rood takes a steep downhill into some rocks. Park either at the top of this hill (gated entrance) or at the hairpin at the bottom (space for 2 cars maybe). There will be a bushwalk signposted into the jungle. Follow this and explore at will. Gladerunner, Clever Girl etc are around the rocky scramble on the track and Endor, Dark Paradise etc are off the end of the signposted Forest Glade.

Ethic inherited from Illawarra

Bolts, some trad. No chipping. A little gluing of key holds has happened on occation. There is a push by local climbers to re-equip old routes in the style of the first ascents.


Discovered 2013 by Jack Folkes.
