Absolute roadside cragging! A generally slabby and unfashionable cliff with a fair selection of mid to hard grade routes. Many of these routes were heavily chipped in the heady days of the 80s. Most routes are now covered in dirt and lichen and the bolts are of very questionable quality. The entire cliff needs a refresh. Be VERY CAREFUL not to drop rocks onto the road which is literally centimeters from the crag.

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.


To get to the crag, drive south down Forest Rd, 'Lugarno', and stop about 200m from its end. The cliff is located on the right hand side of the road (watch out for cars).
