Summary

Gets shade all day in summer and most of the main wall stays dry in heavy rain and this crag is a great hot weather crag!

Description

A real gem with classic easy, mid, & insane steep - shaping up to be one of the north sides best.

Access issues

To get to the crag, park in Amaroo Avenue, Elanora Heights, and find the track leading away from the road, opposite number 10. Follow the track to the first rock platform, then scramble down right (facing out) until you see a small red gum on the edge of the cliff. Climb down the three steel rungs below the tree, then continue right (facing out) until you reach a set of old etriers tied to a bolt. Climb down these (with care!) to the first section of the crag. Climbs described right to left (facing the cliff). There has been some confusion as to whether this crag is within the Garigal National Park or just Lumeah Reserve.

Approach

Enter via Wakehurst Parkway (Narrabeen) and up through Eleonora Heights to Amaroo Ave. Park and make way down park next to green mail. Down stainless steel rungs just left off choss over hang boulder. follow trail right, down a rope step and follow to either micro crag (5mins or main crag (10 mins).

Ethic

Please be respectful to residents in Amaroo Ave, try remain quiet until hidden in track and please consider parking further up the street if busy. Please don't leave trash, poo before entering the crag and please no fires!!

Committing and punchy little number.Start at under cling slab up to rest before the first overhang.Up and trending left as the lip does until you reach the roof.Big reach and serious airtime mantle gets you almost to the anchors.

Blast straight up the guts on pretty hard moves will get you access to the top hard of WUTTF. OK!
