This is the family friendly sector of the cliff, with a good selection of sport routes and the occasional dirty crack. Routes are closely spaced with a nice flat cliff base for belaying. This whole crag was renovated with shiny stainless steel ringbolts and lower-offs in the late 2000s.© (bundybear)
Access issues inherited from Wollongong
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.
Ethic inherited from Wollongong
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.

Top-rope only. 3m right of Top-rope Route 2. Up the wall through right end of small roof.
Start 9m R of DwW at right facing flake. Use holds on lower flake to obtain horizontal crack (can) then traverse right to RB then up and left past two more RBs to lower-off at top. A super big stick-click could avoid the trad.
