Access issues inherited from Rat's Crag
The crag is located on the Illawarra Escarpment plateau, East of the Motorway, which for some time has been semi-tolerated for public access.
The area is full of well developed bike tracks and walking paths (e.g. to the popular Brokers Nose lookout).
Depending on which maps you use though the area may be classed as private property or part of the Metropolitan Special Area (catchment area). Be warned, be discrete!
Similar parking situation to Rat's Crag. From the Picton Road East offtramp follow a power line access trail South-East about 350m until you hit a well established mountain bike trail heading North-East. Follow this for a while till the track bisects two of the crag cliffs on either side. (Refer to OSM if lost).
Ethic inherited from Wollongong
Retro-bolting of established trad routes is frowned upon. There has been some controversy in recent years about new routes being bolted above tourist tracks. Please don't do this.
