Possibly the worst crag in Sydney. A loose uninviting quarry with an assortment of rubbish at the base. In 'Melbourne' it would be popular - but in Sydney it should be forgotten.

Access issues inherited from Sutherland

There is easy access to all the sites with an average walking time from car to cliff being under five minutes! To get the Shire drive south towards Wollongong from the Sydney CDB or take the Heathcote Road if coming from the South West. West Sydney climbers can approach aiming for Menai. Alternatively, take the train. Some areas in national parks are off limits and permission may be sought for crags such as the Wok, Heathcote Bridge and Alford's Point.


Bald Face Point Reserve at the southern end of Stuart St in Blakehurst. The cliff is directly below the lookout. Scramble down the left side.
