Fossil Wall





This wall is located 5 minute walk down hill from parking area. Easy climbs on good rock, if you're climbing sub 20's this is the area for you.

The foot of the wall is heavily covered in ferns but the climbs are worth the small bush bash at the base. There are occasionally leeches but Aeroguard keeps them away.

If you have benefited from climbing infrastructure in NSW, please consider making a donation towards maintenance costs. The Sydney Rockclimbing Club Rebolting Fund finances the replacement of old bolts on existing climbs and the maintenance of other hardware such as fixed ropes and anchors. The SRC purchases hardware, such as bolts and glue, and distributes them to volunteer rebolters across the state of New South Wales. For more information, including donation details, visit


At the end of the road, head left into the bush at the last no-parking sign before the gate, over a large rock. Then down through old car wreck Snd following cairns until the top of the cliff. There descend first right and then left, squeezing between rocks. The crag is visible to your left.
