Summary

Easy access, family friendly in an awesome area. Good idea to wear a helmet at least while belaying in case any loose stuff comes away, it is a newish cliff in a sea environment.

Description

15 metre high walls in a picturesque and dramatic sea cliff gully

Access issues

Usual weekend and school holiday access only

Approach

20 minute walk in on the groomed Outer Tubes trail from the lighthouse carpark. Instead of continuing down the steel staircase as for the fishos area, slip off the trail to the left at the post and then easy scramble down to the gully. The great wall is on your left.

Where to stay

Grade Route

The left most route as you arrive after the scramble down the descent gully. Thankfully stops before the band of choss is encountered. Short and fun warm up.

2nd route on the wall as you face the cliff. Great climbing with the exception of one band of choss. Great holds all the way up.
