<header intro="A short crag and cave found below the end of Moonah Rd, Alford's Point. The fairly ordinary slabby wall has been climbed on, but all fixed protection and belay trees were affected by a hazard reduction burn in 2013. The area is currently CLOSED to climbing and bouldering as the cave is a significant aboriginal site. Please respect this closure, so that climbing may continue in other areas.&#10;" name="Moonah Road" rock="" sun="" id="1" access="" walk=""/>
<header intro="A short, easy access crag above the Georges River. Great for winter, as the black walls soak up the sun. Further right of these described routes is a small orange cave with signs of prior Aboriginal occupation. Please don't climb here." name="Moonah Road" rock="Slightly slabby face climbing" sun="All day sun" id="1" access="Park across the road from 29 Moonah Rd, Alford's Pt. The cliff is about 60m down into the bush. Access from either end by scrambling down. Left end (facing out) has a handy gully ramp which is the easiest way down. Avoid the crag in summer, since it faces basically north and hence bakes. The crag is located within the George's River National Park and access can be best described as &quot;Don't Ask - Don't Tell&quot;. Climbs described right to left, facing the cliff." walk="5 minutes"/><image id="10" src="Alfords_Moonah1.jpg" width="400"/>
