Couldn't let your post go unanswered. I know the walk, well part of it anyhow. That's quick! I've walked out to Faulconbridge point and down to the Grose, and from memory it's a good 6 km or so to the GR track turnoff from the locked gate. I've been thinking about riding my MTB out there then walking down, but I think it would take me the same amount of time on the bike
Anyway sounds like an epic day trip K. I remember reading a trip report on a similar route and suspect that the cave on top may have been visited by the The Bush Club, possibly I read it in Day walks in the lower Grose River and tributaries
). Although I doubt they would have left anything behind. The CC on the river could be Wentworth Cave, but I haven't been there.
Over the last 10 years or so have walked out along most of the ridgetop FTs that head to the Grose as well as a few of the overgrown ones that branch from them. On one occasion we ended up overlooking Wentworth Creek from one of those (maybe off Linden Ridge?). I recall thinking that it looked possible to descend from there. Appeared forbidding further on though. Must have a look at the map. Anyway here are a couple of photos from your trip locality, lovely spot:
