Excellent steep climbing can be found on the face, the usual stuff of course but quite compact, the two shorter routes on the right are a good intro to the sport climbing hereabouts.

It looks a little like a Gorilla's face profile

Getting There 

This is one of the first crags on the left driving towards the Punchbowl. Park just past the private drive, there's a trailhead here and the trail can be followed to its end, as it heads first east, then south, from there the Gorilla Face is to the right as you face south, (the routes are on the east side of the crag).

Cairns are now in place visible from where you park and along the trail to the Gorilla Face.

Climbing Season
