A undeveloped stretch of hard sandstone slab with easy access.
A good cliff line broken into two, offering good height (~4m) slabs, on generally excellent rock with good landings. It's all around the 0-2 grade range, and still needs a brush. The first cliff (single bed area) is more technical, while the second cliff (Queen ensemble area) is more ballsy, but straight forward. Choose your own adventure!
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.

Park a for Party Palace Cave at the bottom of the hill at the park next to the George's River on Henry Lawson drive between The River rd and Picnic Point Road. Cross the road to the Lagoon side, and walk west. You'll find a little bridge. Across the bridge, a little track starts (well defined). Follow it for about 30 metres and the crag will be obvious on your left.
Another one discovered in 2012, but very undeveloped.
