Top Side Boulders

  • Grade context: AU


A collection of short, broken, slabby rocks directly above the road.

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


The boulders can be accessed by scrambling up from the road, but it is sketchy and a fall will land you in the traffic on a blind corner.

A better way to get to them is from the walking track at the top. This begins up the hill, right before the houses begin. Follow it back down the hill on top of the cliffs, past the scout hall, to the top of the boulders.

Ethic inherited from North Shore

Respecting the enviroment and keeping crags clean will maintain a healthy and important relationship between the climbing community, local councils and National Parks. Carry out what you take in and enjoy what the North Shore has to offer.

If you come across an area that is being developed or you think could be under development, please show all due respect to the developers and do not climb the projects listed on
