Seaside bouldering.

Description

A single overhanging crack boulder problem with an ocean breeze.

Access issues

Remains dry at high tides up to 1.6m but may be wet in strong easterly swell. In the shade from about 11am onwards.

We are climbing on Darkinjung land. Take your rubbish with you and respect the rules of the 2020 management plan.

Climbing is permitted under the 2020 plan of management. It is imperative climbers adhere to a code of conduct. Groups of more than eight people need a permit from the NPWS. https://acansw.files.wordpress.com/2020/09/code-of-conduct-2019.pdf

Approach

Park close to Killcare SLSC and scramble across the boulders at the south end of the beach for about 100m to find The Killcare Crack on a large boulder with an ocean facing overhang.
