Access issues inherited from Thompson's Sunrise

There is a private property boundary just meters past the East Access gully (in line with the East cliff face), do not stray past here.


Lookout Wall is located directly below the Thompson's Point Reserve 'Lookout' and is accessed by scrambling down the gully 10m right (east) of the lookout.

Ethic inherited from Nowra

Mostly developed as a sport climbing and bouldering area. Some trad climbing exists, mainly the pure cracks. If developing new areas keep an eye and and ear out for Aboriginal cultural heritage, including cave art.

3RB's to 2RB anchor.

Start: Aboriginal for 'Climb Quickly'.

Start 2m right of the arête halfway down the 'Lookout' 'Access' 'Gully'.

FA: Jason Atkinson, 2000

A little runout to start but then easy climbing. If you are feeling strong you can finish with a long hard move to pull up level with the anchors (add a couple of grades) or you can just clip the anchors from below.

2RB's to 2RB anchor.

Start: Start 20m down and right (west) of the bottom of the 'Lookout' 'Access' 'Gully' on the rock shelf directly below the lookout and the well brushed streak.

FA: Jason Atkinson / Lee Walker, 2000

Links 'No Drama' into 'Melodrama'.

Start: Start as for 'No Drama' but veer left at the 1st RB and continue up 'Melodrama'.

FA: Jason Atkinson / Lee Walker, 2000

Delicate climbing with a thought provoking crux at mid height.

3RB's to 2RB anchor.

FA: Lee Walker / Jason Atkinson, 2000

Warning Fixed Gear: Loose first bolt

A hard move up the initial face is followed by an interesting slab towards the top. Finish direct or chicken out and take the easy option by moving left. 6RB's to 2RB anchor.

FA: Jason Atkinson / Lee Walker, 2000

Links the 1st half of 'The Furburger' into the 2nd half of 'Blister In The Sun'.

FA: Jason Atkinson / Melissa McNie, 2005

Climb the crack right of 'Blister In The Sun' and finish at the anchors of 'Something For Kate'.

FA: Jason Atkinson (solo), 2000

A nice easy well protected climb for the beginners. The crux is getting established onto the wall just above the overlap at 1/3 height. 6RB's to 2RB anchor.

FA: Jason Atkinson / Ian Ezzy, 2002
