A Crag Guide gives an extensive view of all sub areas and climbs at a point in the index. It shows a snapshot of the index heirachy, up to 300 climbs (or areas) on a single web page. It shows selected comments climbers have made on a recently submitted ascent.

At a minor crag level this should be suitable for printing and taking with you on a climbing trip as an adjunct to your guidebook.

Mostly Trad

Long/Lat: 146.803503, -19.238846

Unique Features And Strengths:

Close to the strand good for a swim after


Once a major part of Townsvilles defence during WWII. Kissing Point offers climbing close to the city center with plenty of climbing options. most notably "Swinging in a Sunday Sea Breeze"

Access Issues:

In recent times there has been issues with strand security guards telling people they can not climb here because it is army land... THIS IS NOT TRUE.


Enter the area next to the Rockpool on the Strand

Where To Stay:



DO NOT cross the fence into the army property


First Developed in the 90's some climbs are bolted, but I would check how safe they are before using them. I have personally seen a bolt fall out while the climb was being top roped!

Contrived, but still good. Smooth face 3.5m L of arête to horizontal crack at 2/3 height. Your last gear goes in here. Now straight up the middle of the face to the top. Don't stray.

7 ** Swinging in a Sunday Sea Breeze

hanger is missing from the 4th bolt

Awesome! Hardest on the cliff, and also the best. One of the only climbs here that isn't a poxy slab! The line of five FH's starting 0.5m R of the arête. A left arm killer! Scott says "If you use the sloping wall on the R you are not climbing the proper route". Chains at top. Scott Bewley 4/97
