Climb around South of manly dam. Some portions are multi use so watch blind corners for walkers. There is good semi technical climb half way along. It is all both directions except for the small section of single track at the north end.

Access Info

North end starts just south of the water reservoir, south end starts just past and thru Manly Vale Primary School car park.
