Did you know that you can create an account to record, track and share your climbing ascents? Thousands of climbers are already doing this.


Lots of top rope potential, with many cliff top anchor points. There are a few ringbolted sport routes and a couple of old carrots.

Access issues

This is a National Park. Keep a low profile.


Park near the speed camera on Henry Lawson Drive. Cross onto the southern side of the road and walk 50m East. A series of tracks should be visible in the scrub near the road. These tracks all lead to the cliff top. There are 2 or 3 points along the face that can be scrambled down to the cliff base.


View timeline of historical ascents

The original development here went on in the early '60s with scout groups from Revesby and Padstow. The main area was on the other side of the ridge from Blackwall where the cliffs were higher. Climbs were top-roped and used for abseil practice for climbing and caving. As this was the early '60s not many climbs were led but there was not much around in the way of gear - steel crabs and laid nylon and manilla ropes. None of the routes were named but pretty much everything that could be climbed was, starting with the cracks. There may have been a more recent wave of activity in the 1980's and 2000, but nobody has come forward with any details.
