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

Ethic inherited from Illawarra and Shoalhaven

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

The steep arête & hanging lip starting just R of Jammer, with heaps of fixed nonsense.

Fully ringbolted as of 2011. A striking splitter handcrack through one of the biggest, chossiest caves in Nowra, but amazingly the rock in the crack itself actually looks sorta ok.

FA: Rod Young, 2000

FA: Andy, 1997

FA: Rod Young, 1989

Hard little move off the deck then it gives up.

Start: At little corner crack right of S.

Only goes up to the same level as where there's Pork. Rope drag (and ability)prevented continuation.

The first climb i bolted with the petrol drill and carrots, then later filled it with rings. Really good climbing after the slightly flaky lower section.

Start: At the bottom of the slot right of the arete.

Up scoop then over to the crack at the top of this traverse to the left and onto the wall above.

Start: Same as POTRM.
