Has anyone ever climbed / attempted to climb / abseil this place? I saw a corded thread about 20 m up the wall. Any details would be appreciated


Cheers

Go and look at the rock at the bottom. Its choss. The whole wall is choss. It makes the Watagans look solid.You know that.

Is it sandstone? Some of the darker bits look ok...

All choss. Grew up about 1km from there and checked it out countless times. Even if you did get to the top, the last 30m of mud would be hard to protect!! Maybe check out susan gilmore beach for some bouldering, still pretty loose.
