This is the major cliff on the Wolgan Valley, with the longest, most spectacular climbs. It is not, however, the best rock in the Valley. Most routes are fully in the shade and up to 100+ meters in length.
Just past the (abandoned?) pub in Newnes is a large grassy clearing. Old Baldy is the obvious, massive cliff just ahead to the north.
