Raw, untamed climbing on the beautiful Illawarra Escarpment.


Head East from Robertson down Lee's Road. After 1.3km on Lee's Road you will enter a section of the Budderoo National Park and there is a track turnout left to a small fenced lookout. Walk approximately 100m left along the cliff line to reach an abseil area.

Descent notes

100m left from the lookout there is evidence of an old rappel area (2 studs). Suggest using one of the two large trees for a rappel down (60m).

Ethic inherited from Illawarra

Lots of bolts in this region. Most development has been done after the 1980s.

Starting at/in the bush, up to a mono-pocket and side pull then up to first ledge. Straightforward climbing then traverse out right to avoid the vegetation heap. Aid to top-out or rappel back down due to vegetation at top lip.

Bouldery first few moves to get over the ledge, then straightforward holds to a balancy mantle section then up and walk out.
