Its south of Forster NSW near Booti Booti NP. North headland has 6 bolted routes some with hangers, some with carrots, all glue in. The routes look good, I lwas fishing. Anyone climbed there?

You should have been surfing instead bro, as it's one of the better breaks up that way.
Prove me wrong with a list of what you caught?

Yes. The bolts are all good and the routes are ok - be scary today in the big swell.

Routes start at about 13 on the right and go up about one grade as you go left.

There are more new routes established this year over the backside in the zawn. They require a rap in and some work to access. I can give you details of the first ascensionist if you want details.

Are there any other established routes on that stretch of coastline between Seal Rocks and Forster?

Not strictly on the coast but quite near to it, Bulahdelah has plenty of established routes, though be mindful of access issues depending which part of it you intend going to...

Re Bulahdelah: only the Beehive area through to the Cave is open ( the northern sector) to climbing, though walking to that area through the south section is fine. Don't climb in the southern part, Forestry are in the middle of discussions with the land council right now.

Not on the crag. Nice, solid 25?m slabs on a volcanic looking featured rock. 100m up off the beach, lots of room for new routes.

It was dusk on the last day at high tide and couldn't get around the headland. Was up there packraft exploring/fishing on Wallis Lake. Paddled south of Booti Booti and there was some good rock there as well.
Never went as far as the zawn. May look for a low swell and wind window to go back

The new routes established are directly the other side of the current slab routes on slightly overhanging conglomerate (belayer wear a helmet too). These routes face North and are hard to access. i will try and get the first ascensionist to put some photos and details on the crag.

There looks to be some potential for seacliff routes between Elizabeth Beach and Bulls Paddock (the top end of 7 mile beach). Access would be difficult from the ocean but there is a walking track between these two beaches so bush bashing and rapping in from the top could be an option.

Between Boomerang and Seal Rocks there is no climbing or cliffs as far as I know. The area is very sandy and there is no real outcropping of any sorts until the volcanic stuff at Bulahdelah. Cape Hawke further north to Forster may be the next best area to explore - I know there is an old quarry there so I assume the rock is solid.
