Description

The Main Cliff gets plenty of sun and hosts a number of local classics. There are also many minor crags scattered around the hillside above the Main Cliff area.

Getting There

Take the road to Glendhu Bay, continue past the Bay and 5km later you'll see the obvious Tombstone formation on the hillside on the left. Continue driving past this to the first car park on the left. This the Main Cliff parking area. From the parking area, follow the obvious path along the fenceline to the base of the crag. Total approach time - 5 minutes.
