Description

Fun bouldering / climbing area with lots of free standing blocs sticking out of the swamp. Roped climbing is all on the giant black centrepiece boulders in the middle of cluster 3, and unclimbed boulders abound on all sides. Further areas are waiting to be found past the established stuff for those who like to explore.

Approach

Access from Round Mountain road. About halfway between the edge of the NP and the campground. Park on the roadside where power lines go past a bunch of promising looking boulders, but trek in through the trees on the other side of the road. The road boulders is visible almost immediately, subsequent areas only a few minutes further.

Ethic

Fragile alpine swampland and vegetation in this area, please consider this when exploring the boulders.

History

View timeline of historical ascents

Found some time in 2012 by Arthur Schultz, who put up the first easy lines such as Salubrious (v1) and Trigrams (v2). Aaron Wells, gordon grant and Luke Cornish all contributed problems in this time. In subsequent years Stephen Hawkshaw and Alan Ezzy have added to the list, with Steve putting up the first trad pitch, the frustrating slab-to-corner crack Dry Ice (18). A range of harder stuff has been done more recently, mostly by Alan Ezzy, such as Sharkfin Rodeo (v5) and Finland (v7). Artie also finally finished his project Salubrious Sacs SDS (v6/7) on the obvious Salubrious boulder. Many projects and uncleaned lines await.
