Description

A series of caves and boulders in a shady jungle like gully upstream of the Hide Away climbing but accessed from Bensley Rd. Named after the jungle like location and the plethora of rotting black pots, most likely used to grow mary jane in the dense bush. Some fantastic steep scoopy roof style problems in these caves and more potential in the area.

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 https://sydneyrockies.org.au/rebolting/

Approach

Head for the corner of Bensley and Mercedes Rds Ingleburn, turn or continue about 700m south down Bensley Rd to the high voltage power lines crossing the road. Park here where there is a gate and some large concrete blocks just pass the open paddock. Go through the access gate and walk down beside the paddock with the fence on your L to a cleared track that parralells the paddock. After about 200m you will come to the end of this and a small rusty gate. Go through this into a grassy area and diagonally L down the hill following a roughly cleared track to the creek. Cross this and go L following the creek for 100m to the first cave (cross creek to get to it). Continue along the creek to the other caves, boulders and faces (4 - 5 caves and a number of boulders).
