From the Donger follow the East Rd passed the turn for the "Swamp Boulders". Just after the turn for the Swamp Boulders the road gets a little rough as it goes through some trees. Drive slow! The road will be slashed as you come out of the trees and start to head south through large, flat open paddock.
Stay on the road until you get to another gate that will most likely be open and can remain open, where you should be able to see the "VLB" to the west (right). The slashed road branches at this gate. (The north face of "Goat Dome" is also visible from this point to the west)
Going either way at this point will get you to Fox and Bondi Boulders.
To get to the Fox Boulders first, head to the right:
Not far along to the right you will come to a low wet spot in the road near a tree. Check to see if your vehicle can get through first. If you can follow the slashed trail as it heads south and uphill. The first boulders you see on your left on the little knoll is the start of the "Fox Boulders". Keep going and you will head downhill into a clearing. The boulders at the bottom and right have some good potential and if you head uphill and over the fence passed these, there is more to be found.
To get to the Bondi Boulders first head left:
Follow the slashed trail that heads to the left, should be signs. You will come to a gate that will most likely be open and can remain that way. Dont go through the gate. Follow the slashed trail to the right, through a low sandy spot and finally to another white gate. Park here.
Head uphill for the rest of the boulders and follow the ridge when you get to the top to the northwest and you will end up in the trees up hill from "The Fox Boulder".
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
To get here follow the directions to the VLB, but when you get to the final gate head left, following the road to a gate. At the gate, follow the fence to the right for about 200m (faint dual track) to another gate. Hop the fence, since the gate will not open, and head up hill for 20m then side hill along an obvious goat trail which will bring you to a large boulder sitting by itself on some exposed granite. This is the start of the Bondi boulders. Head straight up hill into the trees for the remaining 6-15 boulders.
To get to the Fox boulders, don’t jump the gate that will not open, and continue following the fence as it goes up hill and northwest. After 250m you will see the Fox Boulders. A group of 4 medium sized boulders that require some cleaning. Highlights will be a high blunt arête and a short heinous overhanging fingertip crack.
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.
