Mt Ku-ring-gai




The area was rediscovered by Rod Wills in late 2003 although a couple of manky carrots were found at a couple of locations on Motocross wall. Rod and his cousin Vanessa started development at Fossil wall and moved north. The area has been set up well with few scary clips and would suit budding leaders. There are also enough harder routes to keep climbers entertained and potential for new lines.

Drive to the end of Beaumont Road, Mount Kuring-gai and park. See location map for various wall locations.

Midges!!! Make sure you pack your insect repellent otherwise you will levae looking like you have chicken pox. The Midge season is from November to April but you may find them outside these times.

Access issues

It is apparent there is significant evidence of aboriginal occupation in some of the caves of this area, if you chance upon a cave full of shells, or any other clear indication of previous use do not disturb it. Tread lightly as with any bush area you visit and access issues will not develop.

If you have benefited from climbing infrastructure in NSW, please consider making a donation towards maintenance costs. The Sydney Rockclimbing Club Rebolting Fund finances the replacement of old bolts on existing climbs and the maintenance of other hardware such as fixed ropes and anchors. The SRC purchases hardware, such as bolts and glue, and distributes them to volunteer rebolters across the state of New South Wales. For more information, including donation details, visit


Approach differs depending on which area you are heading to. See details for specific area. To get to most crags Gundah Ridge track is the main route in. Cairns have been setup along the tracks to mark where to turn off. However people have been knocking the cairns over, so beware.
