Description

The best sector here. Named after the infamous 1970’s film shot partly in Revesby. The problems in this area are mostly on the large block 15m off the track. Best decent from the top of the block is by bridging with the main cliff line.

Access issues inherited from Sutherland

For over 50 years climbers in the Sutherland Shire have enjoyed free access to many fantastic crags and caves. But as of 2014 there have been access problems emerging at several climbing and bouldering areas due to aboriginal art sites and shell middens in caves. Sutherland Shire Council and the Dept of Enviroment and Heritage have announced closures and sign-posted some of these aboriginal sites, with further closures and signs to be added during summer/autumn 2016/2017. Areas of particular problem are ground level overhangs with flat bases, the type of terrain popular at hard bouldering areas. Whilst the details are sorted out keep a low profile, clean up ALL rubbish (inc removing mattresses in bouldering caves) and avoid climbing at closed areas. In particular treat non-climbers you see at crags with the utmost respect as they could be rangers, archeologists, traditional owners or anyone else with a dim view of climbers and the ability to shut us out. Climbing in Royal National Park has been officially banned for many years - probably due mostly to the Wattamolla 'don't jump off rocks' cliff-diving-into-water ban.

Grade Route

Start as far right as possible on the lip of the small cave. Traverse left and into Commodore.

Standing start at arête / feature on front right of the block. Straight up and over. Often full of leaves!

FA: dwebster, 2012

Sit start at left end of slight over hang at lay back / arête feature. Move up and left ward over slab.

FA: dwebster, 2012

Same start as NtbSa. Traverse the lip left till you reach funky feature. Up and over. The obvious extension all the way to the arête still waits!

FA: dwebster, 2012

Nice. Standing start in two runnels. Move slightly leftward to lip. Feet out right and over lip rightward. Quite nice.

Set by dwebster, 2012

Just missing a cylinder or two. Start at arête at left end of block. Up then R to short flake. Over lip to decent hold. Worth inspecting the top and cleaning top holds before attempting. Crux is relatively high and the decent hold can get dirty.

FA: dwebster, 2012

Awkward. Up the arête on its left side.

FA: dwebster, 2012

Named after the dead Kombi a little further along the track. Easiest way up the ramp about 2m L of arete.

FA: dwebster, 2012

Slab just right of arete on main clif line close to C. Up slab using round arête (with some decent bits) on L.
