Access: 45min walk involving a fire trail initially then a descent into gully with 2 fixed ropes
As of 2017, Mt Kuring-gai recently underwent significant back burning with the the majority of the Lost and Found trails vanishing. All cairns however remain marking the way so keep your eyes open for them. Please be mindful of all the new growth and avoid stepping on as much as you can.
Following the fire trail past Motocross wall access gully continue around the right hand bend for 5 meters where you’ll see a left hand trail blocked by a felled gum tree. Step through the gum tree and continue through the rocky path. Follow the ridge line down looking for cairns as you go. Turn off main walkway and follow cairns to broken cliff. Scramble down broken cliff using the rope. Continue along ridge line following cairns to a rock shelf overlooking river. Scramble down the break behind shelf to via ferrata. Put your harness on and clip into rope! You’re now at Lost & Found Wall. Turn right for the first 13 climbs or left for the remaining 34 with Flash the Ugly Pony being the first climb on your left.
