Mostly short (8 - 18m) sandstone climbs with easy access. There are also some multi-pitch adventures along the escarpment north of Wollongong.


Australias 9th largest city. With excellent beaches, mountain bike trails and a relaxed pace (as compared to Sydney)

Access issues

There are no serious access issues in the region. Don't be a dick and mess up access for future generations by bolting within sight of tourist tracks or pissing off rangers.


This area is about 1.25 hours drive from CBD of Sydney. Crags are within a 20km (max.) range of each other. Most are easy to drive-to and then short walk access.


Retro-bolting of established trad routes is frowned upon. There has been some controversy in recent years about new routes being bolted above tourist tracks. Please don't do this.
