This crag is locked for editing, and its areas are locked. Area additions are allowed
Description:The area was rediscovered by Rod Wills in late 2003 although a couple of manky carrots were found at a couple of locations on Motocross wall. Rod and his cousin Vanessa started development at Fossil wall and moved north. The area has been set up well with few scary clips and would suit budding leaders. There are also enough harder routes to keep climbers entertained and potential for new lines.
Location:Drive to the end of Beaumont Road, Mount Kuring-gai and park. See location map for various wall locations.
Useful Info:Midges!!! Make sure you pack your insect repellent otherwise you will levae looking like you have chicken pox. The Midge season is from November to April but you may find them outside these times.
