Not sure which sector this is in, but Boy From Oz ...


This west facing crag is known as one of the best sport climbing areas in the country. It contains about 80 routes from 19 (5.10a) to 30 (5.13c) and most of them are very high quality.

Getting There 

Access to this crag is a bit of a hike compared to other areas in the Blue Mountains but its worth it. Take Bells Line of Road to Mount Tomah Botanical Gardens and start watching your distance from here. At about 7.7k from the botanical gardens there should be a parking area on the left side of the road, park here. Walk west down the road to a gated dirt road on the right. Follow this dirt road for about 25 minutes and look for a faint trail heading off left, this goes to sectors 5-8. If this is where you want to go then follow the trail about 10 minutes to a fixed rope that will bring you to the bottom of the cliff. From here if you want to go to sector 8 then scramble down below sector 7 and follow a trail heading upstream. This will lead to a tyrolean traverse that crosses the creek and sector 8. If you want to go to sectors 1-4 then continue down the road for another 10 minutes until its underneath some power lines. There will be a trail on your left that goes down a gully and a fixed rope. This will take you to the bottom of the cliff in between sectors 1 and 2.
