Summary

Endurance climbing through big roofs

Description

Big moves off good holds. Great venue if you climbing grade 25

Access issues

Crag open year round, no permits required. Routes severely affected by the SE (i.e. don't climb here if the SE is blowing hard).

Approach

Drive south along Boyes Drive. After the Old Boyes Drive turnoff on your left, continue over the hill and down the other side. At the bottom of the dip is a fixed speed camera (painted yellow). Park about 50 to 80m after this. Remember to leave space for pedestrians to pass on the sidewalk.

The start of the footpath is through a doorway (with no door) in the stone wall on the right hand side of the road. It is marked "Peck's Valley". Follow the steep path up to a contour path (5mins). Turn right and follow the contour, which very soon starts turning up into the valley.

After about 10mins on this main hiking path, look out for a cairn marking the start of the approach to the crag (on your right hand side). Don't turn off the main path until you see this cairn, otherwise you will be bundu bashing. Follow the ever steepening path towards the crag (15mins). Note: this path takes you to the Sideline initially, but it is very easy to get to the main crag once here.

Ethic

No camping at the crag
