Access issues inherited from Blue Mountains

The Blue Mountains are a World Heritage listed area. The Grose Valley, the cliffs around Katoomba and much of the Narrow Neck peninsula are part of the Blue Mountains National Park which is managed by the NPWS. The Western Escarpment - where most of the climbing is - is Crown Land managed by the BMCC. While the NPWS Plan of Management nominates several locations in the National Park where rock climbing is deemed appropriate, the majority of the climbing remains unacknowledged. To maintain access our best approach is to 'Respect Native Habitat, Tread Softly and Leave No Trace'. Do not cut flora and keep any tracks and infrastructure as minimal as possible.

Practically all crags are either in National Park or in council reserve: dog owners are reminded that dogs are not allowed in National Parks at any time and fines have been issued, while for crags on council reserve the BMCC leash law requires that dogs be on-leash.

Ethic inherited from Uber Land

Please stick to worn paths so as not to damage new growth. There is huge potential for new problems of all grades and unlike many Sydney bouldering areas all the problems finish on top of a boulder! The Uber boulder, the highballs or no balls and the Fabulous Baker boulder deserve particular attention. Be prepared to clean the problems with a stiff brush. A wire brush is not needed as most of the lichen has been burnt and only charcoal remains. There are several lines that have been cleaned and not claimed. On the topo there are a few hints to classic lines that deserve more attention.
