Location: Turn into Illaroo Rd off the Princes Highway at North Nowra, just north of the Shoalhaven River. Take the 2nd right which is Philip Rd opposite the church and just after the school. Take the first left, Castle Glen Rd, and at the end turn right into Jamieson Rd. Park at the end off Jamieson Rd, North Nowra and head down the path at the end into the Bomaderry Creek Bushland. Follow the track downhill for 100m until you find a small track heading right. Follow this track past (under) two climbing areas until you reach a huge cave with a big horizontal roof about 10m up. This is it. The bouldering gets harder the further left you go ...
Aspect/Rock: The cave faces N and is so large that it never actually gets the sun on it making it great for summer and winter alike but it is notoriously "greasy" outside of winter so add a few grades. The cave is large enough to not get wet in the rain but it does seep occasionally. The rock is sandstone and very few (if any) holds are chipped.
Problems: Only the most classic and obvious, difficult problems are described from left to right along the cliff and some of them are eliminates. There are plenty of easier problems to warm up on at the right hand end but they are not described here, just do the problems that actually have holds on them :)
