Lawry Plunkett Reserve





Home of the uber-classic 'Lovers Tiff' (V10) and a couple of other good variations.


A few good problems in a sweet location. Flat, grassy landing, no approach, kids friendly and just 200m from the beach.

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


Park on Botanic Road opposite of houses number 36-40 (8$/hour on weekends or $25/day). Caves are visible from the road.

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

Arete on the right side of the bloc to the left of Lover's Tiff.

Start as for Lover's Tiff but keep traversing left to top at the end of the cave.

Same start as for Lovers Tiff but from the big horn, continue straight out instead of right.

Same as for "Lovers Tiff Left" but once you reach the lip traverse right to finish up "Lovers Tiff". A tad harder than "Lovers Tiff Left".

Start on the chalked up jugs, traverse left to pockets out and through the middle of roof to finish above the start.

A.K.A. Lover's Tiff Direct. Go straight out the roof from the start jug and link into the end of Lover's Tiff. Morpho as anything. Probably harder than this if you can't span the first move?

Climb the left side of the bulb, left of the groove.

Stand start on the jug on the lip and mantle up the face to top out.
