An amazing reserve tucked away in the backstreets of Middle Cove. Harold Reid Reserve offers some fun lead climbing at the original Middle Cove crag as well as some amazing and challanging top rope problems at the new School Yard.


From Eastern Valley Road, turn into Cawarrah Road, then right into Rembrandt Drive. Follow this around until you come across two driveways right next to each other on the right side after a dog leg to the left. The first driveway is the entrance into Harold Reid Reserve which has a white gate. Note: Harold Reid Reserve is a loop road and the reserves gate is closed at 5:30pm sharp. So if you want to stay later park outside in Rembrandt Drive.

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
