Description

Whether it's bouldering, sport, trad or DWS climbing the Hunter Region has something for everyone. The region covers the Watagans to the west, Central Coast to the south, Bulahdelah to the north and Port Stephens to the East. The Watagans is made up of numerous sandstone cliffs in a National park. Port Stephens has some fantastic sea cliff climbing on quality granite like rock. Bulahdelah is made up of an alum/rhyolite rock. This rock is very stong and lends itself to some interesting featured climbing, inclucing the famous cave. The Central Coast has fine, compacted sandstone with some great sport climbing caves and bouldering areas. Also has some great trad spots along the Hawksbury. For more information see the Hunter Valley Rockclimbing guidebook.

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.
