Summary

Large area mainly focussed on varied bouldering. Everything from the lowest of lowballs to the scariest of highballs.

Description

Lots of bouldering available with the full extent of the crag not even touched upon. A small number of routes available as well.

Don't bother trying to climb here after much rain as the dam like to overflow very easily. This makes the creek flow quite well, turning lots of problems into shallow water soloing!

Access issues

Around the dam is all on Council land. Please note that as you get downstream of around the pipeline, it turns in to private land.

Approach

Heading towards Thompson's Point along Yalwal Road, take the last right in West Nowra down Filter Road. After about 300m there will be an intersection with the left turn being a dirt track next to a bus stop. Now gated. Park here and walk following the power lines down to the dam (2-300m). Just before reaching the water, turn right down another track. This takes you to the dam wall.

Ethic

No chipping/comfortising/drilling/enhancing. Whatever you want to call it, don't do it.

Clean off excess chalk. Including ALL tick marks!

Please respect a line if it is marked as a Closed Project. There are only a couple that are either routes or highballs. Other than that, go nuts.

Clean up ALL your rubbish.Yes, this includes cigarette butts and finger tape. Yes, there is already junk around the place, its Nowra, what do you expect? Don't add to it!
