Ten Fathom Ridge


Quality sandstone.


Esoteric crag offering some great routes. Unfortunately due to the disjointed nature and prickle bushes it can be difficult to get to and find the lines. A number of lines are best accessed from above because of this.


From the Neds Gully campsite, follow the walking track towards the summit. Path offers good view of the wall on the walk in and if a good place to try and work out the lines. From the saddle to the right of the crag, head across to the top right end of the cliff
