Badgerys Lookout




Badgerys Lookout offers stunning views of the Shoalhaven River.


A great crag with a variety of routes from 10m to 25m Carrot bolts, bring your bolt plates to get the most out of the climbs.

Access issues

A very easy walk from the carpark to the bottom of the crag. Less than 2 minutes.


From Tallong, turn right onto Caoura Road for three kilometres, then turn right onto Badgerys Lookout Road and follow to the end (approximately four kilometres). Sealed road. Take the track next to the Badgery’s Spur walking trail sign. Follow the path with the cliffs on your left until you come across a small easy gully. Scramble down and keep left along the cliff band. Should take less than 5 minutes.

Where to stay

Mixed route up arete.

Same start as Gravity. Tends left of bolts.Good climbing all the way to the top. You walk off the top so there is no belay rings atm.

Follow crack to lower offs.

Powerful movers over 1st cave then easier climbing through bands of shitty rock. Crux final move to chains. Make sure your belayer is wearing a helmet.

Good climbing up Badgerys Lookouts major corner crack.

Start stemming up yellow corner, onto small arete then continue with some powerful face climbing to the top.

Dogs-leg crack on wall below Twins.

FA: S. Flanagan/A. Hall/G. Evans

The following route is on the large “Hulk” boulder that rests against the main crag near Candy Man.

Arete and face climb on the large pillar below Candy Man. Take care when reaching the crumbling ledge. Get on it before the pillar falls into the Shoalhaven.
