Summary

A small North Shore crag that rises up over a choss band. An interesting range of moderate to difficult sport, bouldering, trad and toprope routes.

Description

A North Shore zero access sport crag! Has a number of cool little lines, including a great little 24 that busts through a roof! Climbs described left to right.

Access issues

The crag is in Lane Cove National Park so no dogs, fires or rubbish. Also be mindful of the neighbors as it is quite close to their back yard.

Approach

Park on the corner of Shirley Rd and Valleyview Close, Roseville. Wander down hill into the bush trending left and you'll find the crag. Or take a faint track between number 130 and a light pole, past a boulder on your left, then veer right then back left to the top of the cliff to come out directly above Thunderbird. Descend to the right via chopped steps and boulder scramble.

Ethic inherited from North Shore

Respecting the enviroment and keeping crags clean will maintain a healthy and important relationship between the climbing community, local councils and National Parks. Carry out what you take in and enjoy what the North Shore has to offer.

If you come across an area that is being developed or you think could be under development, please show all due respect to the developers and do not climb the projects listed on thecrag.com.

Grade Route

A great little climb in the backyard of the North Shore!

Start: Marked "24 Thunderbird". The first climb you reach after the walk down on the far left of the crag.

Over chossy undercut onto balancy, slabby face (1 carrot, 1 FH) up to old blue sling on RB. Out to lip of roof 1 carrot and 1 fixed hanger. Then go diagonally through roof passing 2 ring bolts. Ignore previous route info this is how the route is done.

FFA: David Coward, 1995

Start 2m to the right of 'Thunderbird', up the obvious chossy corner crack. The crack narrows from hands to thin fingers up to underside of roof. Go back diagonally through roof 2 ring bolts to lip then over top, basically climb through roof is in reverse to Thunderbird.

FA: Munch, 1994

Up the face beside a right facing flared corner crack. Move left around the arete and up face passing one questionable ring bolt in the process.Top rope off a tree back from the edge, careful not to get your rope wedged in the crack as it widens near the top.

FA: Munch, 1994

Start just right of crack on big jug and left of Deal with it. Crux at top.

FA: Munch, 1994

Follow line of fixed hangers start below 1st hanger, add a grade if you do the sit down boulder problem under the overhang.

FA: 1994

Start: Just right of Deal With It at right end of cliff.

Follow the line of 3 green ring bolts to top, then single suspect gal carrot(had 2 carrots at the top)and slopy moss mantle top out. Massive tree belay, no lower offs.

FA: Munch, 1993

Big layback to start then jam deep into the dirty crack avoiding the ironstone face plates as much as possible.

Start 1m to the right of Crackit. Up over mantle and through big moves on committing crimps. This route is SHARP! Three carrot bolts, all easiest clipped overhead and a two carrot toprope anchor.

A V1 boulder problem with no name now a bolt ladder.
