Summary

A real gem with tonnes of easy to mid grade sports routes to get on with some classic routes of overhang and slab.

Description

Gets all day shade and is always a few degrees cooler in summer.A few routes on the main wall stay dry in heavy rain.

Approach

Find your way to Amaroo Avenue via either Wakehurst Pkwy, or Powderworks Rd. (Please be considerate of the residents in Amaroo Ave, park on the same side as the residents, or up the hill in the street before).

Opposite number 10 there is a steep grassy hill, and bushland funneling into a rock ledge, scramble down at base of a Redgum with rope on the edge of the cliff.

Climb down the steel rungs and rope, turn right (facing out) follow cliff line to ladder. Left Wing wall is after first waterfall then keep following the track for another 120m to reach the cliff proper.

Ethic

Please don't move boulders or vegetation that aren't directly on a route. Please take out all trash, this includes toilet paper. Try to take care of business before entering the crag and if you must dig a hole.
