Graham Dowden edited a topo, some areas and some routes at Wahroonga. 625 28 days ago

Created 1 route and 1 topo and updated 4 areas and 17 routes.

Updated the area Comenarra Parkway.

Changed name from 'The Parkway' name 'Comenarra Parkway'.

Updated node location.
Updated beta description.
Old road cutting in the Parkway. Has a bunch of old lines and some that would be nice for an afternoon out on some longer lines if they were equipped with fresh stainless. The shady south side of the main Comenarra Parkway cutting. Tall for Sydney standards, but generally poor quality rock covered in red lichen. Has some old lines of rusty carrots and a couple of trad routes.
Added beta summary.

Old south-facing cutting of dubious quality.

Added beta approach.

Park at the south-east end of the main Comenarra Parkway cutting and enter the Lorna Pass Track / National Park gate. The crag is on the right for about 50m.

To get to the top, walk up the west end. Walk back off or rap from a tree.

Updated beta history.
No details recorded? No doubt abseiled by Scouts and bolted by others in the dark ages.
Updated beta access issues.
Park in the cutting in Comenarra Parkway. Step over the access gate and you will see the wall right in front of you.

Beware rusty carrots and suspect loose rock.

Updated node location.
Updated an annotation in the area Bouldering - Courtyard, The Block, Environs and other bouldering.
Updated annotation.

There are some chipped i steps on the right end of this block that allows descent from the top. There are a number of good problems to be recorded on the right hand cave end in the future. Take a brush have a scrub and try some stuff out.
