Mount Piddington is the premiere trad climbing area in the Blue Mountains with over 200 routes of all difficulties. It's west facing aspect makes it a good choice for warm days if you can get out in the morning. Rock quality is excellent and the majority of the routes fall within the 14 to 23 grade (5.5 to 5.11b). But there are routes as easy as 5 (5.0) and as hard as 28 (5.13a) so there is something for almost anyone.

Getting There 

From Mount Victoria drive south on the main street through town and turn right on Mt. Piddington Rd. Take a left, right and left to Boronia Point and park here (about 1.2k from the traffic lights in town). Find a gated road on the west side of the turning circle and follow it for 800m to Hornes Point. Take a track down the left side of the point to the base of the crag. This approach should take about 15 to 20 minutes.
