|This crag is unlocked for editing, and its areas are unlocked. Area additions are allowed|
|Description:||Highly popular, historic bouldering destination. Mostly vertical, with some steeper stuff, some highball, some safe.|
Millions of variations on the described problems exist, and everything's been done. Have fun and explore.
Comments on grades and star ratings are welcomed.
|Location:||Near the corner of Archbold Road and Tryon Road in Lindfield is a small driveway (turn right off Archbold before it becomes Eastern Arterial Road and it's immediately after).|
Park up and follow the trail to the right of the tennis courts for two minutes to the crag. Convenience!
|Useful Info:||Problems are described right-to-left. Take care with landings. Most high problems have toprope bolts in place to save erosion and tree damage - use them if you're toproping! If it's damp/sandy, try to stay off to minimise wear.
Problem selection based on 'Sydney Bouldering', 2001 Peter Balint et al, which you really should buy as a Sydney boulderer.
A traverse exists of the entire main crag. This will be added as a separate 'area' once the main listing is complete.
