Description

Taller wall 200m south of the Lower Tier. Drop down a few ledges then walk along base to obvious big wall. Middle part of wall is pretty blank to half height, evidence of previous development with single carrot and some chipped holds up the centre.

Potential for more routes on big wall proper and cave just past it.

Climbs described right to left.

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

30m past fork in road you'll find a small cairn (you need to be looking for it). Turn left here and you'll find a very lightly worn trail (needs more traffic).Follow the white tape to access gully.
