Description

Set off the Wakehurst Parkway, 300m past the "Sydney Academy of Sports and Recreation" entrance, is a bouldering boutique offering a varying range of bouldering problems ranging from V0 - V11

Access issues inherited from Narrabeen

NOTE: When accessing 'Steep Side', please use the newly installed stile and do not damage the fence where it attaches to the rock. There was a recent encounter with Northern Beaches Council, so please exercise respect and discretion.

And don't park contrary to the signs in the RMS inspection bay.

Approach

Access is 300m west of the Sports Academy entrance, opposite the RMS inspection area. Enter the bush between two Casuarinas (sheoaks). There is enough room to park a car or two on the crag side of the road, or you can park as for Narrabeen Slabs and walk back. Parking in the RMS inspection area is not permitted, people have been fined, although there is a small space outside the signs to the east.

History

Development goes back 10 years plus. It was recently re-discovered again in 2017 most problems have been climbed again with a few new one's unearthed. Another online guide (CragX) helped supply some the history of this area, but i don't have names or dates for FA's. So please fill in the blanks if you wish.
