Summertime climbing in Sydney

At 30 degrees celsius, yesterday was a pretty regular Sydney summer day.  I don’t mind this sort of weather, but going climbing and hiking in it probably wasn’t the best idea that David and I ever had.  By 3-4pm, the sun was absolutely belting down and we were tired and thirsty.  Not recommended.

I thought I’d share a few photos though, just because I think that climbing is such a great way to get away from all the trappings of the city and the suburbs.  There are rock walls in all of the national parks around Sydney, including Lane Cove, which is the one we went to.  It’s mere blocks from my university, but a world away once you get onto the trails.

I’m curious about you guys – do your cities have bushland (not just parks) within your city limits?  Do you use them?
