Summary

This sector offers a very impressive hanging 15m high sheer face which overhangs by about 20-30 degrees.

Description

Unfortunately the wall is undercut by a blank roof which mandates a 5m batman start to the good climbs, but this is soon forgotten once you pull on to the brilliant climbing. Both 27s are excellent but receive relatively few ascents by Nowra standards. The 29s and 30 are very neglected but of excellent quality. Anyone willing to scrub off a few cobwebs won't be disappointed.

Ethic inherited from Illawarra

Lots of bolts in this region. Most development has been done after the 1980s.

Start 4m R of Evil E, stick clip and batman to start. The climbing is barely any harder than Evil E but is more sustained, and just as brilliant. It's easy to place the draws while lowering off Evil E if you want the soft option.
