Description

A selection of crags, including one very popular crag (Southwest) located on the Barrenjoey Peninsula. Quite an extensive area, with good rock and a good selection of easy and middle grade (and generally slabby) routes.

Access issues

There is an Aboriginal midden located underneath the cliff at Southwest and below Crack of Dawn - please do not disturb the midden. The crag is located within the Ku-Ring-Gai Chase National Park, however due to its location (on Barrenjoey Headland), climbing is allowed here.

Approach

See individual crag access notes

Ethic

The area is mostly mixed climbing - many climbs are bolted ("carrot" hanger-less bolts for the most part) but also require some trad gear.
