Access issues inherited from New South Wales and ACT

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 https://sydneyrockies.org.au/rebolting/

Approach

Access is at the end of Alan road, trail down to the cave is very faint and not the easiest to find but it is there as there is a trail to a storm water breather located at the top of the water fall, to get there you walk down the dirt road behind the houses and then go into the bush behind number 77 and 79 and find the trail down to the storm water breather pipe it i nearly straight line down to this, the track is basically shortest route to the water fail, once you reach here you are at the top of the cliff so be careful, follow the top of the cliff along to the right and you will eventually come to the end were you can the get down to the bottom and begin exploring. I would recommend mosquito repellent as it is likely they are around. the area is well shaded so should also be fine to access during summer.

History

History timeline chart

I have been walking around the are for a few years now looking for good bouldering places an have only found the odd good spot here an there with limited climbs etc but this area looks to have potential so I have posted it here to try and get some people interested in helping me develop it. It Looks to be a nice cave located in the creek deep in the valley area which has been occupied from time to time by homeless people and kids. It has fairly easy access and at first glance looks to have good potential and looking forward to developing this area, I have not decided on a name yet but I will get there, I welcome local climbers to help develop this area and, grade as I am time limited these days, looking forward to see the development of this area.
