Crag features

Fantastic bunch of walls named after bolting the first climb in a full moon with a headlight torch.

Typical Noawra sports routes with a sprinkling of trad lines.

Moonshine is reached by going left uphill from the car park.

The DARK SIDE has something for everyone as it has a bit of everything. Similar rock and aspect as the "grotto".

Location: From the carpark look north and locate a small cairn. Follow the faint track fifty mtrs ahead and at the next cairn drop down a very easy gully, past a fallen big dead tree to first small cliff (Fat Wog Wall). It's less than five minutes to the first climb from the car! Climbs listed right to left.

Approach notes

On your way to Tianjara falls. Look for the 620 sign just past the intersection of Braidwood and Turpentine Roads. Turn off to the right about 1km after the 620 sign into a gated (open) road. Follow this to the obvious car park just b4 the road goes to to 4WD heaven.

Walk down the crazy 4WD track 300 mtrs for moonshine or look right for small cairn and follow this for 5 min for Darkside, et al.
