The Golden Section

  • Ascents: 51




The Golden Section is a small steep high quality bouldering crag. It offers some central coast's best V6-V8 problems.

Access issues

Recently there was a fire (as of Sep 2015) and all the cairns ran away. However access now is easier if you don't mind a little bit of easy bush bashing. With the GPS marker +-5m of the actual location its a breeze to find.


Park at the top of the Depot rd fire trail of Patonga Dr and follow the trail untill it clears and a fork appears. Take the right fork and follow for about 5 mins untill you see a small path with a pink ribbon on your left. Scramble down and left to find the Golden Section
