About Norton Summit.:

Norton Summit is home to the biggest cliffs in the Adelaide Hills. It has two main areas, the Cave, an area that has some very difficult climbing to offer, aswell as a few multi-pitch routes. There is also the Hole, a roomy "cave" that has some very difficult and massively overhung, short and powerful routes, aswell as plenty of bouldering. Climbing is limited between certain times of the year (1st Jul to 30 Dec.) due to a pair of nesting Peregrine Falcons. However the cave is unrestricted.
Nearest town or city: Adelaide
Directions: Follow Magill road past the Norton Summit road turn off for 3.4 kilometres, you will see the cliffs loom up on your right.
