Outcrop of rock in the Belanglo State Forest. Good long route on OK rock and small snappy boulderss with face climbing. Routes are described from the far right side of the crag back to the descent path.
Located just outside of Berrima. Exit the Hume Highway at the Belanglo sign. (Cross the highway if coming from Sydney, if you hit Sutton Forrest McDonalds you have gone to far.) Drive past the Gordon VC rest area and onto the good dirt track. (Belanglo Road.) Contine through Forest for a cople of KMs. Once you have passed Dailys Road rest area on the right take the second fire trail on the left. If you reach the Cherry Tree Road and the horse farm you have gone one road to far.
Drive down the fire trail, straight across the first junction and the second juction (Dogleg and a bit bumpy.) Join Cherry Tree Firebreak and wind down this for 5 minutes until you reach the turning circle at the end.
Park here and follow the path and cairns down hill for 2 minues until you reach the cliff. Approach through boulders to the right.

Snappy bottom , up two small ledges to the Gritstone finish. Much harder if you stay out of the crack First route on The Boulder.

One hard move over the lip and it is all over. Bring those large sea gull bashers. Trad crack at the far left end of the Block, next to the descent path.
