Party - Bob, Norm, Dave
This was a rather unusual walk - under the cliffs of North Head. We
started from the car park near the Barracks and then walked down to
just above Shelly Beach - then started on our undercliff traverse.
Above - Easy going on rock platforms
Above - looking back, this section had been harder
Above - For the next bit - we scrambled up above the cliffs and
eventually made it to the point
Above - looking down from the point (Blue Fish Point)
Above - We find the way down
Above - This part was nice going
Above - To continue we could swim, or use the ropes.
Above - We used the ropes.
Above - More boulder hopping ahead.
Above - Looking up at an old concrete structure half way up the
cliff. An old defence installation?
Above - Looking back
Above - Time for lunch
Above - Looking over at South Head
Above - The next section looked very interesting...... it was up
some old fisherman's ladders. Very dodgy! And dangerous.
Above - Hornby Lighthouse on South Head and the city
Above - Bob makes it up the tricky bit - an exposed chimney. Rope
would have been handy here (and harnesses and belay gear).
Above - Note the whale just in front on the boat
Above - Norm on the last bit of the climb
Above - View from Fairfax Lookout - looking back at our walk.
Above - You can just see a whale in the middle of the boats.
