This area comprises about 3 walls, with Orca taking on the prominant arete right of the big roof. The mossy slab has some newly bolted routes that will improve with traffic.The slab to the right is quite good and should be quite popular.

Ethic inherited from Illawarra

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