Description

Located behind Macquarie University Northern Field lies a cliff line holding a few classic moderate climbs.

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 at the north end of Busaco Road, Marsfield. At the end of the road you will notice a stretch of concrete with a white gate at the end. Walk past this gate and follow the powerlines for about 200m, passing the powerlines tower on your left and the chain-linked fence on your right. You will see a locked gate in the fence, and immediately opposite a small trail leads down the hill. This brings you to some old stone stairs through the cliff. Chewbacca Slab is to the left of the stairs, looking at the cliff.

There is also a trail a bit further back which comes out near the top of "Deep Impact".

(There's also a potential easier line to the left, though the right arete looks a bit thin and scary)
