Description

Open project! Blasted rock face on the side of the old new england highway. This wall is located at the top of the dreaded "S- Bend" of the second road (1872-1939). Thankfully this part of the road has been decommissioned years ago and we can climb here with great landings.

Access issues inherited from Old New England Highway

If you cross a fence then you have probably entered someones place, and a lot of illegal rubbish dumping happens there so be careful!

Approach

Best is to park on the entrance spot/track down the old new england highway. Cross over the first fence that runs diagonally across the old road then walk down the road for 15 minutes till you reach another fence. The fence here has new barbed wire and a wire gate, I assume its public land still been the old road. Pass over that fence and 30m you will see the distinct bend in the road.

Ethic inherited from Old New England Highway

In recent times there seems to be some activity there and in respect to everyone's hard work unless its your project or have permission to share please don't. On the flip side if there is no indication that someone is working it/cleaning etc then its fare game.
