Description:Like Diamond Falls and Gateway this crag attracts the wind. In summer the sun hits the crag at about 2pm. Funky sport climbing. An excellent find.
Location:The Egg is situated on the Elphinstone Plateau approximately 5mins from Katoomba and 15mins from Blackheath. If approaching from Blackheath turn right at the Explorers Rd – do not attempt to turn into Explorers Rd at the ‘Marked Tree’. 20mins easy walk then 7mins down a steep track. The track to the crag is not marked as such (see info and access). Stay on the main fire trail, dont take any right turns, until you walk past a cleared area with a 'lean to' in it (ruins). Turn right 10m past this area - the track straight ahead leads to the Trig Station and Esgate's Ladders - walk aprox 140m and look for track through rocks and logs. Track is well marked after this.
Useful Info:No matter what the weather is like at the car take a jacket or jumper - and a hat! Its wilderness so please treat it with respect. No new routes, no cairns.
