Description

For organizational purposes, all of the crags north of Sleepy Bay are part of the "Coastal Cliffs", and all of the crags south are part of "The Hazards", even though almost all of these cliffs are coastal.

Climbing varies dramatically among these areas, from the more southern crags around Cape Tourville, which are virtually abandoned, to the relatively teeming Bluestone Bay sea-cliffs to the north.

These crags offer all the variety of the typical granite crag, with big roofs, low-angled slabs, dihedrals, and splitter cracks. Routes tend to be a bit heady, and weather and tide can play a significant role in some areas.

Getting There

All of these crags are approached via the Cape Tourville Road in Freycinet national park. Climbers generally inhabit the free campground at Bluestone Bay (no freshwater). There's also a more developed free campground at Richardson Beach.
