Summary

Some great slab boulders, both easy and hard as well as a cave with a vertical wall on the side. All just next to the bike track and car park.

Description

A pleasant and shady west facing bouldering area, that isn't very popular. Surprising really, since it's obvious from the Prince's Highway! It might be something to do with most of the problems being slabby. There are a bunch of climbs on a long boulder next to the path, "the Dome" just to the left of it, and the upper section up the hill a bit. It's all a bit old school and techy compared to modern thuggy caves. Because of its extremely high visibility, please do your utmost to minimise your impact at this crag. Please erase all chalk marks and remove any rubbish you see in the area.

Access issues

According the the NSW government's Aboriginal Heritage Information Management System there are 9 recorded Aboriginal sites in Carrs Park, with two of them being along the cliffline where Up in the Nose Bleeds sector is located. The remaining 7 sites are along the waterline on the eastern end of the park. Take care of the place - avoid digging out caves especially as these could be midden sites.

Approach

To get there, park at the end of Bunyala St in Blakehurst; the bouldering is on the small buttresses just off the end of the street.

Ethic

We acknowledge the The Gameygal (Kameygal) clan, members of the Dharug language group, as the Traditional Owners of this unceded land and recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and culture. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging. Treat it like it's sacred as it is.

History

History timeline chart

Carrs Park was extensively bouldered on by Sydney Rockies members and Shire locals before 1999 but details of problem names and first ascent people and dates were not recorded. This was the way many Sydney bouldering areas were quietly explored prior to the existence of online guides. Further developed during the 2021 lockdown. First ascents are quite possibly first recorded ascents, unless the cleaning required is especially heinous.
