Summary

Primarily a bouldering area, with a few beginner crack and slab climbs. Very little traffic

Description

Motley assortment of sandstone boulders and short walls in beautiful location. Mostly shady. Beachside walls cooler in morning. More likely to see a wallaby or fox than another climber

Access issues

If you are heading out to this area please respect the privacy of the local residents. This area is within Bouddi National Park. Rangers have threatened to confiscate climbing gear from those using Lobster Cave and it best to keep a low profile.

Approach

On the hill south of Dogface and SE of Lobster Cave. Walk in at the big boulder opposite 40 Albert St and take the left fork straight up the hill.

For southern end of area, use Lobster Beach track (from High View Rd) and take the first of two tracks to the right at top of hill (second track goes across to Lobster Cave and Dogface). Head past large angophora tree and up into boulder area, coming first to Farside. Base of Kudyung wall accessed 50m around western side of Farside or scramble down from NW end of Frenchman's Hat.

Ethic

If using ropes, please protect trees and rock. Only clean what you intend to climb
