Summary

Quality rock in a gorgeous coastal setting.

Description

Coastal area littered with boulders. A lot has been developed, but there's plenty left to go. Walking up and down the coast from the main boulders will certainly lead so more rock!

Access issues

Respect the rock and natural environment you are climbing in. Clean your rubbish up and give tick marks and caked chalk a good scrubbing.

Approach

If you have a 2WD: Park at the end of Mutton Bird Rd (-35.047398, 117.693879), then take the sandy 4WD track trending left. Take a right as the track heads back in land and up hill (-35.049211, 117.701962). The rock field is obvious on the right as you emerge from the shrubs - the first boulder you see will be the All Time Compression boulder.

Alternatively park at the end of Fishing Rd and follow the sandy track down.

Ethic

Clean tick marks and caked chalk. Clean up your rubbish. No chipping, gluing or bolting.

History

History timeline chart

Discovered back in 1986 by Lord Jim, the first areas to be developed was The Hilltop Circuit. The coastal boulders were spied from this lofty vantage and Jim opened some of the easier lines in the 1980s. The Alamo was then developed later. The area had a resurgence in the late 1990s when Jim brought crushers Dave Mcnamara and Patric Kirkland to the area capturing some trickier classics such as 'King Canute' and the heady slabs on the 'All Time Boulder'
