Description

From the intersection, turn left and head up the road. This is the first area on the left. There is a small boulder you pass with four problems on it. You can either turn off to the left and park or follow the road as it curves around the boulders to the right and park.

These boulders lie in a national park. While there are no current access restrictions, please respect the nature of the park and aim to minimise your impact.

FA: Andrew Richards

14
V3 Left Arete / #13 Boulder

Pretty standard stand start then up the arete. Getting off the boulder is the fun bit.

FA: Ky Wittich

15

A few variants of this are possible through the various crack-lines at the front and back of the boulder holding 'Zac's Arete', including down-climbing #17.

FA: Duncan Brown

16
V8 Zac's Arete / #15 Boulder

Also called 'the nothing'. V8 in the guide which depends on beta that goes out right before heading up the arete. If you stick purely to the arete you could probably add a grade.

FA: Zac Vertrees

17

The direct version of 'Zac's Arete' heading up some minging crimps and poor feet out to the arete.

FA: Chris Webb Parsons

18

Up the crackline using the arete/crack to ascend. Harder version that uses only the arete still to go.

FA: Ky Wittich

19

Variant of #17. 6+? On sidepulls and using the arete (toe hook/heel hook) but not the opposing boulder. 6 in the new guide but possibly harder.

20

Traverse slopers from a sit start to finish at the mantle for 'Mini Mantle'.

21
V3 Mini Mantle / #19 Boulder

Mantle problem. Straight up to a rail then a goey mantle depending on your height.

FA: Duncan Brown

22
V5 to V7 Desperado / #20 Boulder

Very height dependent/morphological. From a stand, top out. If you can reach the higher crimps, consider taking the lower grade (V4 might even be appropriate), otherwise grovel your way up to the crimps and mantle. Has been flashed a number of times, including in dunlop volleys!

FA: Duncan Brown

23
V6 * Socks / #21 Boulder

Sit start. Given V5 in the October 2013 guide but harder than 'Blue Balling'.

FA: Chris Webb Parsons

24

Mantle problem. Crimps and up, fairly standard.

FA: Duncan Brown

25
Blue Balling Sit Boulder Project

Sit start and up Blue Balling. A long-term project - likely to be into double-digits.

26

FA: Duncan Brown

US V5 Bum Nut Boulder 4m
