Description

An amazing little series of overhanging/vertical deep water solo routes. Crystal clear water and superb sandy seafloor landings also make this spot a moderately popular jump rock. Come at high tide, else risk falling into knee-deep water or straight onto sand

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 https://sydneyrockies.org.au/rebolting/

Approach

Parking on Cutler Rd: Swim from the beach featured on the index (about 100m) or walk along the rocks.

Parking at the end of Barabrooka St: There's a convenient 'path' down from the spit to manly track
