A small zawn with easy access. Most climbs are top rope though there are several bolted routes. You'll still need to bring some bolt plates for the anchors at the top. Some moderate graded routes for beginners. Numbers refer to the top rope bolt station when this is still the best anchor. Climbs described from access ramp clockwise. A couple of routes are bolted requiring hangers. Best to rap down and place these especially dead albatross, which needs a 0.75 cam still to back up old bolt for anchor.

Access issues

Theheavy rains in 2015 have caused some instability with several blocks having fallen. Be very careful of trusting any block. A refrigerator size block has fallen off between wabbits and animal experiments


From Anna Bay drive turn down Morna Point road and at the coast turn left into Iris Moore Park. Walk north east for 40 seconds and you are at the top of the crag.
