Summary

A quaint bushwalk which results in a grand view of the Hawkesbury River and a crag offering some unique problems. Well worth the bush walk in!

Description

A small crag with a great view. The rock here is well weathered and sports no choss. Some of the problems here are quite 'challenging' but that's the name of the game.

Can whoever put these up add missing topos so routes can be identified?

Access issues

At the end of the Challenger Track scramble your way down to the base of the crag. Access along the base is slightly overgrown but your crash pad will sort that out soon enough.

Approach

Pay the $12 Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park entry fee then drive toward West Head avoiding the cyclists. Stop at the the Challenger Track on the left, about 400m before the Basin Trail on the right, and 3.5km before West Head.

Walk about 1.3km to the lookout at the end of the track, with a huge view up the Hawkesbury River to Brooklyn.
