Description

Home to the one of the sweetest problems found thus far at Beulah, "Swamp Thing" a sweet high problem up wicked features and the higher you go the easier it gets.

Boulder are (or should be) listed from roughly close to the car park first, and then down the hill towards the 'Swamp boulder'.

To Get There:

Follow the road east from the Donger. Watch for the sign on your left. Go left at the sign and follow the rough road to a creek crossing. Check the crossing first for depth of water and whether or not your vehicle will make it through.

By car or foot cross the creek and follow the road, go through a gate and continue east. Watch for another sign on the right and follow slashed trail to the Boulders.

NOTE:

As of April 1st, 2012 the access to the Swamp Boulders in now 150m further east along the main road. Please use this as the old access is too wet and the new trail is high, dry, and has ample parking. You park near the top of the hill and right next to the park is 'John Quilkins' and near 'Strongbow Original' .

Access issues inherited from Beulah

Access to Beulah is only permitted during the Annual Beulah Rock Festivus that is held there every Easter. More info here: www.beulahrockfestivus.com

Ethic inherited from Beulah

First ascents are hugely appreciated and the object of climbing at Beulah. Scrubbing lichen and removing loose rock is encouraged but the line is drawn at chipping holds or glueing holds back on. If a hold comes off, please leave it off and climb what the rock affords you.

Bolting is also permitted with permission and as long as there is no available natural protection. For example this includes a 30m climb that requires 9 bolts and one cam or wire to protect. The adding of a 10th bolt for the convenience of not having to carry said wire or nut is not acceptable.

V1 ** Baldys Knob Boulder 4m

Find the slab covered in little knobs facing the back of swamp thing, about 50m behind it. Start with the largest knob in your right hand. For a bit of extra fun try climbing the slab without hands once established.
