Description:© (Ashy)

A total 'Nowra' classic. Great fun roofing with very cool moves. Pity it is quite short, but at least you get a 'bit' of exposure.

Start: This route starts in the exposed cave above the mini wall, under the obvious roof.

Ethic: inherited from Illawarra

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