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

Park near 27 Tuross Blvd and walk down to the obvious high boulders just south of the main beach. 1 min walk in.

History

Developed in Dec 2014 by Nick Murphy. Could've had previous ascents simply because of it's prominence but nothing marked or recorded.

Start in little overhung cave closest to the water and pull up from sit start on pinches and throw to rail above.

FFA: Nick Murphy, 28 Dec 2014

Short climb, with most of the fun moves down low. Start with both hands on the lowest jug (see chalky hold in image) and feet pressed out right on the adjacent boulder. Then work your way along the feature, before working yourself on top of it. Then an easy climb out over the top.

FFA: Nick Gilmore, 25 Dec 2017

3m left of the previous climb/back up the beach. Small rightwards leaning crack corner, follow up from sit start without using the large left hand ledge.

FA: Nick Murphy, 28 Dec 2014

Same sit start as 'The Whale In The Room', except punch out left to ledge and mantle

FFA: Nick Murphy, 28 Dec 2014

Left again of the previous climb. Easy moves up face and moving up between vertical cracks

FA: Nick Murphy, 28 Dec 2014

Obvious high ball crack problem. Needs lots of pads, or top rope it. Open Project
