Summary

A real gem with a tonne of classic sports routes. Bulletproof sandstone with some of the most amazing climbing in Sydney, a urban crag that has a mountains vibe.

Description

The crag faces Southwest, gets all day shade and is always a few degrees cooler than Sydney. Elanora is also a great wet weather option with some climbs remaining bone dry even in heavy rain

Access issues

Access is clear, however please be respectful of residence as there are houses on top of cliff line. Please stay away from the top of the cliff and when cleaning routes try to refrain from shouting loudly.

Approach

Find your way to Amaroo Avenue via either Wakehurst Pkwy, or Powderworks Rd. (Please be considerate of the residents in Amaroo Ave, park on the same side as the residents, or up the hill in the street before).

NO DOGS!!!(National Parks Rules)

Located opposite number 10 there is a dirt track leading down a steep grassy hill, follow the track funnelling down to a rock ledge, a Redgum tree and metal rungs.

Please take care these rungs can be dangerous. (two points of contact on different rungs at all times.)

Climb down the metal rungs, at the base turn right as if facing out from cliff line. Keep Following the base of cliff line to another drop off with a metal rung and fixed wooden ladder.

Left Wing wall is after first waterfall then keep following the track for another 120m to reach the cliff proper.

Ethic

Please don't move boulders or vegetation that aren't directly on a route, leave no trace and take out what ever you bring in.

Try to take care of business before entering the crag and if you must poop please dig a hole as this is on the edge of a National Park.

History

History timeline chart

First developed in the early 90's, this crag was touted as 'the best hard sport crag in Sydney" and was subject to “experimental bolting.”

With recent re-development, new life and new routes have been added to the huge list of routes at the crag. This could not have been possible without the vision and hard work from the original 90's crew. - Peter Martin, Steve Kelly, Jason Rutter, Scott Wilson, Pete James and anyone else who helped out!
