Access issues inherited from Mt Keira
Mt Keira Summit is 1.2 hr drive south of Sydney CBD. The summit overlooks the city of Wollongong (9th largest city in Australia) and has superb views up the southern coastline.
From The Mt Keira car park walk back down the entrance road for exactly 5 minutes (350m) . On the right - just as the road starts to turn left sharply - there is a rock out-crop , scramble up the rock steps and then:
- head immediately down the steep slippery gully to the 1st wall.
- head right across the top of the climbs to get to the climbs beyond 'Wallyard arete'

CLOSED project [New - Sept 2012] Start on the rock platform, up jutting features to the 1st ledge. Bridge corners to get to 2nd ledge. Now it gets harder - grasp for pockets and thin footholds to reach the diagonal ridge...
[May 2012 - new Loweroffs and bolts]
From the path - up the arete , pull up to the 1st platform then up the razor arete to the second platform. Hunt for the holds and smear up to the top.
From the top you can also exit via Sand Pit Wall Exit route, thus making it a multi pitch route
