Fox Cave




Approach requires bit more work as lots of trees have fallen down. Cave still seeps after days of no rain.

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


Park at the culdesac at the end of ferguson street that comes off of edinburgh rd in forestville. Walk down the small set of stairs and straight into the bush, you will see a small cairn halfway until you reach a small cliff line from above. Walk rightwards on top of this cliff line until you find a downward scramble which has two white tags on the trees and then keep walking so that the cliff line is on your right-hand side. The cave with be all the way at the end of the cliff line.

Start on the jug in the roof, up and mantle into the scoop.

From the jugs just under the lip, move powerfully up and mantle the shelf at its highest point.

Straight out the roof and mantle right of the broken slopers.

From the two perfect slots in the middle of the roof, come out and match on the broken slopers.

From the two perfect slots in the middle of the roof, move horizontally through the roof, then come out to the lip opposite the smiley face, finally finishing on a jug a couple of metres further up.

Great moves linking in to Voodoo Child.

Start matched in the thin flaky slot 1m back from the lip, head out and rightish to some desperate slopers and finally match in the break.

"Grimacing" into Agent Orange.

FA: Sharik Walker

From the big hueco head left to the next big hueco, then straight out and up to finish over the lip. Crag classic.

From the big hueco in the roof head straight out. Same finish as Primordial Soup and Grimacing.

1.5m left of the smiley face are 2 undercling pockets, grab these. Make a big move out to the cool fin, then another to the big hueco and straight out.
