Summary

Tired of punting? Feeling like a one trick pony? Get some variety in your life with some sketchy highballs, dynamic throws, flowey warm ups and a couple of minty projects here and there.

Description

The crag features a horse trail running throughout it with prominent boulders a quick gallop astray. The pick of the lot are the dynamic Ultralight Seam V6, the intimidating Yea or Neigh? V4 and the techy Sit Down and Hold Your Horses V3.

Access issues

Since it's practically next to the horse trail, make sure you respect the rights of riders and passers by.

Approach

You won’t need four legs and some hooves to find your way around this one.

Driving along Wakehurst Parkway, turn east onto Dreadnought Road and continue along it until a kink to the right changes the name into Oxford Falls Rd. Park on a gravel patch about 10m past the driveway to the tennis club on the opposite side of the road. There should be a short 4WD track immediately behind your car.

From the carpark, head in through the track with 4WD marks for roughly 10m. Veer right, passing between two juggy boulders with big scoops on the right to scamper up to the next level via an access ramp. From here, walk straight ahead for 10m, picking up on a faint clearing and a trail, heading left to continue along it for 60m towards the approach boulders.

Ethic

If putting up any first ascents, wire brushing is never acceptable on sandstone. Chipping is a no go.

Brush your tick marks and take your rubbish out with you. Please don’t chuck banana peels off the track or else I’ll call the cavalry on you.

Shoutout to Marc F, Hai T, Stephen R, Connor S and last but not least, the Millarpede in all his glory for spotting and putting up climbs in the area.
