Description

The best crag in the region for both the variety of routes and the scenery. Generally excellent climbing with something for all climbers... roofs, walls and slabs. New Guide book for Nowra published winter 2011.

Approach

Follow Yalwal Road out West of Nowra following signs for the University. After a couple of kms, turn into George Evans Road signposted for the Uni. Straight through the first roundabout and again at the second. Follow the dirt road for less than a kilometre and take a right into Jonsson Road. Follow to the very end under the powerlines.

Ethic inherited from Illawarra

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

A bunch of roofy things. Generally fine climbing swiped off Fat Mark after he gave up.

If you can climb it you can have it. Bolted with the idea that finger nails were expendable resources and that when you ripped them all off they would one day grow back. Don't bleed too much over the rock.

Start: Start as for the previous route, but then go directly up the slab at half height.
