Boome Crag

Access issues inherited from New South Wales and ACT

If you have benefited from climbing infrastructure in NSW, please consider making a donation towards maintenance costs. The Sydney Rockclimbing Club Rebolting Fund finances the replacement of old bolts on existing climbs and the maintenance of other hardware such as fixed ropes and anchors. The SRC purchases hardware, such as bolts and glue, and distributes them to volunteer rebolters across the state of New South Wales. For more information, including donation details, visit


Continue walking up river past "Steeper Wall" for about 80 meters

Ethic inherited from Illawarra and Shoalhaven

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

One of the first areas bolted at Nowra. The first generation carrot bolts can still be seen rotting away in the brilliant orange rock. All of the worthwhile routes have been re-bolted in stainless steel. Some of the grades have been pumped up to get traction into the area.
