Although containing some interesting climbs, this area was originally used for training of scout climbers due to it's manageable size, easy climbs and proximity to the camping area at the end of Bangalow Rd. The rock in this area tends to be grainier than most other cliffs at Monkey Face.

Access issues inherited from Monkey Face

Access to the crag is an easy 10min walk from either the Monkey Face or Gap Creek Falls carpark. You can also access the crag via the top car park and head down Central Gully.
