Summary

Steep and Fantastic hard rock.

Description

An old trad area which has recently become the latest hot spot for local South Western Sydney sport climbers. The Junk Yard Cave is the stand-out feature - a large south facing cliff protected from rain with several very steep and hard routes.

Access issues

The parking in Woolwash parade looks dodgy and the suburb doesnt have the best reputation, but this street is largely families and oldies, and no issues have arisen out of many visits by the locals. Please be polite to the locals and park on the median strip in the middle and dont leave valuable is the car as a precaution.

Approach

Park in Woolwash Crt in Airds near Campbelltown. Dont leave any valuables in the car, and preference is to park in the front of the houses. The area is a bit shit. Jump the gate at the end of the road and head down the hill. For the Trackside Cave head down the hill past the second gate around the hairpin and the wall will appear on your right a little after this. A total of 500m. For The Junk Yard Cave jump the gate take the first R after 100m, then an immediate L at the fork. In a 100m go left on a vague track and follow the rutted track down the hill to a lookout at the top of the crack with a couple of car wrecks. Go R facing out down the gully/track and then back L to the base of the caves.

History

Short ungraded trad routes established in the 1970s and now a mega cave discovered by Matt Brooks in winter 2012. The 70s tradition was cracks and no bolts but the era of bolts has seen some of the steep new faces open up a heap of potential.

23 * Firestarter Top rope 12m, 4

Good fun, Very Gritstone like, with a few bouldery moves at the finish. Approx 50m R of TB at the seam and face.

FA: Matt Brooks, Marek Brock-Tasler, 2013

37
15 The Burbs Sport 12m, 5

A fun easy route. 10m R of Malcom X below the bolted corner, crack. Yes the bolts are the because the walls of the crack are a little flaky. Will be better after some more cleaning and ascents.

FA: Marek Brock-Tasler, Matt Brooks, 2013

16 * Malcom X Sport 15m, 5

Up the L face of the corner around the roof on L and up onto the slab into the cave.

FA: Marek Brock-Tasler, 2013

21 * Delusions of Granduer Sport 15m, 6

Start 3m L of Malcom X. Climb the thin face then up the L side of the steep scoops to the top.
