Updated beta approach.
Drive in via Wakehurst Parkway (Narrabeen) and up through Elanora Heights to Amaroo Ave. Park next to green mail box and enter down opposite 12 Amaroo Ave. Down stainless steel rungs just left of the chossy overhaning boulder. follow trail right along cliff, down a rope step and follow to either micro crag (5mins or main crag (10 mins). Head North on The Wakehurst Parkway (Narrabeen) , left up Elanora rd, then up to Amaroo Avenue, Elanora Heights. Opposite house 10-12 there is a steep grass hill, follow the track trending right, and then scramble down at base of Redgum tree with rope on the edge of the cliff. Climb down the steel rungs and rope, follow cliff line down to ladder. Left Wing wall is after first waterfall then keep following the track to the main cave.
Updated beta access issues.
To get to the crag, park in Amaroo Avenue, Elanora Heights, and find the track leading away from the road, opposite number 10. Follow the track to the first rock platform, then scramble down right (facing out) until you see a small red gum on the edge of the cliff. Climb down the three steel rungs below the tree, then continue right (facing out) until you reach a set of old etriers tied to a bolt. Climb down these (with care!) to the first section of the crag. Climbs described right to left (facing the cliff). There has been some confusion as to whether this crag is within the Garigal National Park or just Lumeah Reserve.
Updated beta description.
A real gem with classic easy, mid, & insane steep - shaping up to be one of the north sides best. Gets all day shade and is always a few degrees cooler in summer.A few routes on the main wall stay dry in heavy rain.
