CAUTION !! - in the mid section of the climb there is a massive ring bolted boulder unattached to the main cliff, resting on a friable base. Its stability is unknown - last major rock fall in that area = Feb. 2012. !!
Natural pro. Not popular but a nice climb. Multi pitch with excellent positions. Start at the J.
24m It might be an idea to get your belayer up on the small ledge before you traverse out on the utter crap at the start of this climb. A couple of highsteps will get you to a large horn. Sling this to avoid the 15 ft grounder! Very easy moves up slab near the nose on better rock. Up groove to ledge and left to large tree belay.
14m Follow crack or wall tending right to belay beneath the final roof.
Crux 7m Up short corner to incut hand traverse left under roof. Contorted exit to belay at the top.
"The Big K" is worthwhile for a day trip from Sydney and a very good local cliff for those that live around the Illawarra - R.Young
.. and if all else fails, remember ... The Law of Gravity is STRICTLY Enforced
