Moonah Road

5 minutes

All day sun

Slightly slabby face climbing


A short, easy access crag above the Georges River. Great for winter, as the black walls soak up the sun. Further right of these described routes is a small orange cave with signs of prior Aboriginal occupation. Please don't climb here.


Park across the road from 29 Moonah Rd, Alford's Pt. The cliff is about 60m down into the bush. Access from either end by scrambling down. Left end (facing out) has a handy gully ramp which is the easiest way down. Avoid the crag in summer, since it faces basically north and hence bakes. The crag is located within the George's River National Park and access can be best described as "Don't Ask - Don't Tell". Climbs described right to left, facing the cliff.
