Dry Tooling around Sydney

Does anyone know of any quarry's or other areas where some suitable rock for dry tooling may be in the Sydney area?

Of course I don't want to mess up decent rock and certainly not rock that is used for climbing on or is of geological importance.

Cheers

Neal

Ive done some 'dirt tooling' & a few unfortuante trees, but never really had the urge to try rocks, not in Sydney anyway. Where abouts are you? I guess quarries are going to be the best bet..

I'm in Glebe. Quarries would be ideal it's just finding them that's the problem.

Sea Cliffs? Any particular areas you would recommend where I wouldn't piss off any local climbers?

98% of the seacliffs are worthless to 'normal' climbers. Wear a helmet and eye protection! Any where along the south of south head would suffice.

Disclaimer: never been dry tooling.

North of Rosea Gully if you continue to the bit you have to swim across to get further north there is a bunch of old steel rubbish hanging out of the cliff. This is some choss you can not hurt. Also look for quarries in public parks that are discreet. Bill Mitchell Park in Gladesville was good 25 years ago as a place to chip holds and place carrots, you may be able to get away with dry tooling these days.

Thanks guys. I'll check out the sea cliffs. Does anyone know of any inland quarries that may be good?
