Blue mountains bouldering

I went for a walk through Leura Forest on the weekend, and noticed some really good undeveloped bouldering potential. Does anyone know of any restrictions on brushing/climbing down there?

There's a girl who climbs at The Lactic Factory in short shorts who I'd consider 'undeveloped boludering potential'.

Im not taking the piss here:

Find out who controls the land.

Find out if there is anything enviromentally or heritage/culturally significant. Do not find this out from the land controller.

Find out if the land controller knows of anything enviromentally or heritage/culturally significant. If they do not, remove anything enviromentally or heritage/culturally significant and start climbing.

If you get the vibe you may get busted don't climb there. You'll just stuff it for others in the neighbourhood as the authorities become more vigilant because of your incursion

no, but if it's a really special, beautiful area then maybe common sense would stop you from defacing it with chalk and tracks around the bottom of the boulders...

A cynical person once suggested that common sense is not that common...

My experience with Blueys rock is that if it's dirty and particularly mossy, then the rock underneath is going to be rubbish. Something about the moss waterlogging the sandstone and leaving the silica soluble makes it soft. So if it's good clean rock it might be worth it, but if it requires a lot of cleaning it probably won't, and might just piss off a lot of locals.

You'll need to chip it heavily to fit in with the rest of the Bluies bouldering...
