Featuring some of the tallest cliffs at New Nowra, this crag has a scattering of true classics, especially if grade 23 is your fav. It's the area canvassing the cliffs between Moonshine and Hylands Lookout. There are about 30 routes spread out along a number of buttresses, each with a very different feel. The est routes are in the 22-24 grades.
Drive out along the Braidwood Road until you go past Turpentine Road (on your left a major road) a further 50 mtrs on your right turn into Deans Gap Road, follow this dirt road for a couple of kms until you hit the powerlines. Turn left under the power lines and follow them down the hill past one tower and stop about 100 mtrs before the creek (you know you're in the right place if there is a small clearing at the edge of the bush and the very small ground cover is flattened by cars). Hopefully find for a white road marker showing the start of the track!
Walk westwards into the bush via the clearing and follow the track marked by yellow ribbon (John drinks coopers for trackwork donations) it will bring you out to a small gully. Go down the gully and go left facing out, you should be walking under overhangs now (for 200 mtrs).
When you get to the end of this walk you should be at the first climbs in the "Access Canyon" at the back of this canyon is a scramble to get you access to the main section, just follow the cliff for 5 mins.
