Did you know?

Did you know that you can create an account to record, track and share your climbing ascents? Thousands of climbers are already doing this.


Impressively large roof system with a large assortment of climbs. Stays completly dry in the rain but can be affected by mist if the elements are against you. Be prepared for some serious pump.

Access issues

This area is on National Park land so be sure to be respectful of the local public and environment.

If parking on Mulhall St but be careful not to encroach on peoples driveways and do not park in front of Number 6. Under no circumstances should you park on Albert st.


*Changed the directions a bit to keep people away from the houses.

Park at the Lobster Beach walking track (17 High View Rd, Wagstaffe) Follow the paved track then the stairs straight up to the top of the hill until just before the stairs that head down to the beach. Turn right here (Don't take the trial before that heads diagonally back down the hill you just came up) and follow the cliff top trail for about 500 m, past the bouldering area up on the hill to the right, and past a wooden house until you reach a group of boulders. Take the downhill left fork for a few metres, then head straight downhill for about 20m.Cut back left under a small overhang and along the base of the cliff, the cave will appear.


There are still a few projects here. Please respect the bolters and stay off.
