Did you know?

Did you know that you can create an account to record, track and share your climbing ascents? Thousands of climbers are already doing this.


Large sandstone boulders and butresses in a small but dense jungle-esque valley. Recently discovered, alot of cleaning required but alot of potential. Keeps relatively cool in the heat.


Head out of North Nowra along Illaroo Road. When you get to Bangalee, take a left into Koloona Drive. Keep driving for about 2.5km until the rood takes a steep downhill into some rocks. Park either at the top of this hill (gated entrance) or at the hairpin at the bottom (space for 2 cars maybe). There will be a bushwalk signposted into the jungle. Follow this and explore at will. Gladerunner, Clever Girl etc are around the rocky scramble on the track and Endor, Dark Paradise etc are off the end of the signposted Forest Glade.

Ethic inherited from Illawarra

Lots of bolts in this region. Most development has been done after the 1980s.

Sit start and straight up.

Crouch start, up via jugs and slopers to a top out next to vines. More strenuous than you'd think.

FA: Jack Folkes, 1 Sep 2013

Sit start under prow on rail. Big moves straight up to a hard rock onto the slab and delicately up. V5ish to the lip. Whole thing maybe V9.

Sit start on sidepull under prow. Move right to gain right side of roof via big move, slap up arete until its possible to rock onto slab. Originally planned to start on rail further left but broke the hold. Doable but much harder.

FA: Jack Folkes, 1 Sep 2013

Sit start on right. Lip traverse up and left to top out the same as Dark Paradise.
