Access issues inherited from New South Wales and ACT

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


Drive into Tathra and follow the main road down past the IGA. Turn right onto beach street. Go straight (this means that you keep going straight and turn off beach street) ahead when you get to the right hand turn in the road. It looks a bit like someone’s driveway, because it sort of is. Park on the left where there is a little walking track. Go right and follow the walking track. Follow the track around and take the second exit off to the left. Walk down the rocks and turn’s the deep cave about a meter and a half can’t miss it.

Grade Route

Start inside the cave with hands on the grippy sloper on the back wall and feet on the back wall just below your hands. Climb across the roof, heading out right (from looking at the cave), until you reach the edge of the cave. From the edge, head up the face and over the top. Something to note, the starting hand hold and footers are the only part of the whole back wall that is in this climb. When getting near the edge of the cave it may be tempting to use the back wall that comes round, it’s not in.
