The main, though broken cliff line visible from the road. Problems described from right to left looking in.

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


From the flat area of rock look north east to see the tops of this obvious cliff line. Drop down any of a few decents and figure out where you are!

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

About 20m to the right of the next problem. Start on the right of the cave's lip, and traverse out left.

FA: dwebster, Feb 2016

At far right (looking in)), just left of tree.

FA: dwebster, Aug 2015

1.5m Right of arete belonging to Bratwurst.

FA: dwebster, Aug 2015

Just right of Bratwurst arete. Up.

FA: dwebster, Aug 2015

A great position and solid rock! Up the arete on its left side. Pockets then big reach at top. Can come in from slightly left using pockets. Possibly nicer.

FA: dwebster, Aug 2015

About 3m left of bratwurst. From little crimp and undercling, jump for break, then up.

FA: dwebster, Aug 2015

The low buttress between the two larger ones. On it's right side. Nice.

FA: dwebster, Aug 2015

Start as for Cabanosi, but traverse leftwards, finishing at nice rail about 1.5m right of corner.

FA: dwebster, Aug 2015

Next buttress left from Cabanossi. Climb over the hole.

FA: dwebster, Aug 2015

Scary landing but excellent. Follow the twin left leaning lines up. Great rock. (Prawns are the most dangerous thing at the deli.)

FA: dwebster, Aug 2015

Far left (looking in) is a decent sized cave. (More problems here?!) Start on the nob and a crimp below the hole (lorikeet nest) with feet in big break. Up to hole, then left to good holds before rounding lip to ramp. Finish just below the moss and drop off.
