Last couple months I've been developing a new crag at Fortescue Bay (Canoe Bay) with some crew. It's now posted under the Fortescue Bay guide. Trad climbing with some mixed routes and an easy approach. A great summer weekend option if you're camping down there, hopefully also provides good winter climbing too. Please enjoy.
Great, easy access, moderate trad./mixed in a classic location. A busy time by the look of it , 35 climbs in a very short period. Surprising what has been hidden so close to civilisation. Re ‘time-bombs and loose rock removed,’ we had a football-sized boulder off the top of Fortescue Bay crag once, missing the belayer by a couple of metres but chopping the sheath. So, take care.

The top down approach to cleaning whilst unpleasant was definitely warranted. A light tap on a fridge sized rock sent it hurtling down. It's pretty safe now thankfully! And no awful top-outs into scrub.
C'est Tasman Peninsular rock!
