Onsight Sydney Climbing Guidebook - 1st Edition

This is a new rock climbing guidebook to the best rock climbing in and around Australia's largest city. The Sydney Climbing Guidebook thoroughly documents 1145 rock climbs at 24 popular crags. The guidebook includes approach information, crag beta, area history and route descriptions with detailed maps and inspiring photography. Sydney Climbing is your essential guide to this climbers paradise!

It is no great secret that scattered in and around Australia’s largest city is a plethora of really great climbing. From idyllic Barrenjoey and several slabby-or-steep options in the north, delightful bush crags in the north-west, the big steep urban fringe Campbelltown crags in the south-west, Sutherland Shire’s line up of classic crags in the south, inner-city Earlwood and of course the sea cliffs — the unique, crazy and unforgettable sea cliffs — in the east; Sydney-siders and visitors alike are really spoilt for choice. The traffic might suck at times but for climbers Sydney is something of a paradise. And yet…. there has been no print guidebook to the best of it all… until now!

SYDNEY CLIMBING – SELECTED CRAGS (1st Edition) is an entirely new guidebook to 24 of the best crags in the area, documenting 1145 routes. Some of these crags have not been covered in a print guidebook for decades; some of the newer ones have never been covered before. Authored by Neil Monteith, extensive research has been undertaken to create the most accurate documentation of these areas available. With the critical importance of access becoming all so apparent in recent years, this book has been responsibly produced and includes important information and sound advice, in an effort to help keep access open to these areas.

The book includes topo photographs of almost every route, exciting new action photos and history sections for each area. It is a thorough, significant and overdue documentation of Sydney’s best rock climbing. Note, this is a guidebook for roped rock climbing, it does not cover bouldering. The design will be familiar to many climbers, as it is based on the style we have used for our other guidebooks, something we have refined over the years and which is very user-friendly. The efficient no-nonsense design has enabled us to pack in some 332 cliff topo photographs and 50+ action photographs, along with the route descriptions and 20 maps, into this 212 pages (size A5, full colour) book.

  • Modern user-friendly design
  • 21 beauifully rendered maps
  • 336 cliff topo photos
  • 1145 climbing routes at 24 crags
  • Inspiring action photography
