VR Climbing Guidebook for Yalwal Road
This virtual guidebook provides information for: Thompson’s Point, Afterburner Wall and Yalwal.
Thompson’s Point is one of the most popular sites in Nowra. It offers a great location and is easily accessible for the whole family. Variety of climbing here is hard to beat. Thompson’s point is saturated with sport climbs with grades ranging from 12-32 with great vertical walls to overhanging roof climbs. You can even get away with a 50 meter rope most of the time but I would recommend taking a 60M just in case. Head to the Grease cave if it happens to rain.
The ideal season for this place would be Mar-Nov.
Things that caught my attention:
Views of the Shoalhaven River
Kangaroos hopping near the carpark in the afternoon
Pocketed Wall, especially the Hustler and Muscle Hustler
Birds generally flying near Pocketed Wall
The Grease Cave

Afterburner is more hidden and less frequented by comparison to Thompson’s point. Routes are not in abundance in the same way but all the same it offers some nice climbing and added tranquility. All the routes are bolted and grades range from 13-24 and go up to 25 meters high. Ideal time to visit is Mar-Nov

Yalwal is still under development and so far it only has a couple of established climbs. It is however very high by comparison to most routes on offer in Nowra, and so be sure to take a 70M rope for this one. All the routes are vertical and require natural protection in some places. Nothing graded over 18 so far.
