Hey, going to the bluies this week with my girl, who dosen't climb much, can anyone advise of any areas
around katoomba and blackheath with some easy top roping and single pitch lead climbing, trad or sport.
easy access would also be nice! cheers...

Maybe consider Medlow Bath, Piddo, Zig Zag, York, Dam Cliffs. Depends if you have a car I guess.

yep, dam cliffs are a great spot to take beginners - a few very easy routes and a very
pleasant spot to boot, a swim afterwards is a great way to finish.

drive to mt vic, turn tight to bell then turn left on the 'bells line of road' after about 5(?)kms
turn off to the left about 20m before a rail bridge. Follow track beside rail for as long as
possible & when track veers left from rail, take first right to keep near railway. Leads to a
open gravel area with a random fence, drive through the fence gap and head down hill to car
park. or something like that...
and yeah, you've gotta hit the cliff jump after!

I think this link might work if you copy the whole thing into your browser address bar -
but essentially what b dubya wrote and then you HAVE to
jump off the cliff afterward - I did it not only 2 weeks ago its AWESOME

Looks like your browser is messing your posts up a little by inserting carriage returns in the middle of your html tags (which chockstone turns into <br>). What are you using?

browser problem? nah, just user error (as usual...)

thats better. :)

Setting height and width tags doesn't save any bandwidth, the full size image is still downloaded and then resized on the client machine. May as well remove the height and width tags and let us see the images in all their glory (or add links to the full size versions)

Fixed. That's twice I've had a copy paste fail this afternoon. The other was accidentally sending one of those pictures to someone instead of this one: http://imgur.com/XJSO3
