Description

A small crag that features a unique climbing style. It has a moderate density of sports and bouldering routes. It's quite sheltered all year round, but climbs may stay wet several days after heavy rain.

Access issues

The crag and the access track is situated just on the Darling Mills Creek, in the Hills Shire council. The Hills Shire council takes great pride in their bushland and nature reserves. Please take care and have respect when climbing in these areas.

Approach

Park on Winton ave Northmead, follow the stairway down to the track along the Darling Mills ck, left along the track and follow it to a boulder on the ground on the right with a cairn on it aprox 100m from the m2 bridge. Go down the hill and to the right to a pebbly crossing across the river, head up the hill to the big ideas wall.

Ethic

When bolting a new climb, please consider whether it's worth it and make sure to use appropriate soft sandstone bolting methods.

History
