This crag is unlocked for editing, and its areas are unlocked. Area additions are allowed
Description:This rap-in halfway ledge is situated between the Sunbath and Sporting Complex areas of Medlow Bath, with the Hydro Majestic dominating the skyline above. The cliff face is mostly dead vertical and contains six two-pitch bolted routes and one two-pitch trad outing, all just under 40m long. The large ledge, the area above and the climbs themselves feature spectacular views out over the Megalong Valley.
Location:To find the crag follow the track down from Belgravia St past the circular sunbath itself to the lookout above Schwing. Turn left and follow the clifftop path. (The crag is visible, 100m away to the south, from the next lookout). From here the path goes in around a wooded gully then back out towards the cliff. It swings left with a thicket of banksias on the right. Where these start to open out there is an old indistinct set of man-made steps heading down to the cliff edge. If you get to where the path turns sharp left you have gone 10m too far.
Useful Info:At the bottom of the steps look a few metres to the right to find a pair of fixed hangers at the top of a small gully. (The hangers are grey and can be difficult to spot). Use your own carabiners and slings on these to rap down the short 45 degree sloped gully then the cliff itself. A 50m rope is easily long enough. It is best to bring a rope for this purpose and leave it in place. The route you rap down is Bohemiath. If you wish to climb this route and not have the rap rope in the way you could rap from the top anchor of Stuck in the Middle with You, a few metres north - two rings a metre back from the cliff edge, set in a cavelet underneath a boulder. The crag is in the sun from 1:00pm in summer.
