Approach

Park in Gourlay Ave Balgowlah There's a track leading up the hill, past a water pipe opposite the 2nd last house. About 100 metres up the hill, you'll come to some rocks. From the top look south & you'll see North Harbour Slab below you. State of overgrowth may vary.

History

View historical timeline

This micro crag has been used by climbers desperate for a hit for years. Probably first discovered by Bryden Allen or one of his mates in the 50s.

Hopefully some more visits will help keep it less overgrown.
