Balkans - The Trenches and The Frontline (Sydney)

The Trenches

To get to the Trenches, find Renown Rd in Baulkham Hills in the street directory. Located on this road is the Baulkham Hills Sports Centre, opposite which is a carpark beside a set of soccer fields. Park here and walk directly away from Renown Rd between the soccer fields, down the bank and along an obvious track. About 50m into the bush the track hits a series of 4m cliffs and boulders that have formed a series of trenches.

The Frontline

To get to the Frontline, find Larra Cr, North Rocks in the street directory. About 50m from its intersection with Mill Dr is a Fire Brigade trailer parked beside a long cement driveway. Park near here and follow the driveway down to its end. Turn left at the bottom then follow the obvious track right into the bush. About 50m down is the start of the crag. Faces west.

Laurent, Nicolas and me spent a beautiful day in this fantastic crag, meeting nice people and sharing with them an unforgettable experience.

Je signale à Jey, fan de Joe Simpson, que son collègue de cordée, Simon Yates a également sorti un bouquin sur ses péripéties en montagne.
L'as-tu déjà lu ?
