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

Walk from Newnes campsite on maintrail left of river, from this trail there are apparently few ways to the 'Lower Cliff':

  • after 150 meters turn left uphill on obvious trail between two stone cairns. Wind your way up into a saddle and up and left you will see a large white patch of cliff (this approach is described in 'The Last Samurai' [684220764], but the path was not to be found Sept-2019)
  • after about 900m, on the left there is a flat area with a very shy path that will becomes more visible going uphill. This will take you at the bottom of 'The Chain'

There is then a track going alongside the whole cliff, keep walking East (right facing the cliff) will take you to the 'Solo Gully', which is the easiest why to reach the 'Upper Cliff'. The 'Upper Cliff' is accessible also climbing one of the long routes on the 'Lower Cliff'. This GPX file contains the path and some of the climb location of both 'Lower Cliff' and 'Upper Cliff': https://1drv.ms/u/s!AicnXbnwQDGvhaF9kpRdJkjIGScpGA?e=VA0RMh Most of the lines have initials on them.
