North-Western side




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


The north-western side is to the right of the descent gully described above, but the climbs start about 100m (?) further along. The cliff on this side is more broken up than the south-western side, but has more variety in the rock features. There are some sections with superb, clean rock which require little

or no cleaning, but also a lot of loose stuff. There are several ways to access the north-western side since it is fairly broken up, and this will most likely depend on which climbs you would like to get to. Currently there are two climbs that start from

the bottom of the cliff – 'Toxic Beauty' and 'Igor the Lada'. Apart from 'Easy Tiger!', the rest of the climbs are on the Sunny Ledge and can be accessed via a rock scramble from the top of the cliff. The Sunny Ledge is a good place to climb in winter due to its northerly aspect. If you can get your car down the rough north track, you will end up on a flat rock platform, and about 50m out from here is the cliff edge, although finding the access to the climbs from here is tricky. 'Access' is described

within the climbs below.

Lots of bolts in this region. Most development has been done after the 1980s.
