Nearer to the water tank on the ridge, this area encompasses a few spread out boulders starring one that looks just like a split cherry, and then further up the ridge a funky stacked set of boulders right near a tree. Topo now added - not every climb is shown, but you should be able to find your way around, and a number of climbs are on the projects boulder (on which #41/42 can be found).
Access issues inherited from Cooleman Ridge Bouldering
Please be sensible accessing the Horse Paddock boulders if walking in from the Kambah side and go around the horses rather than straight through the pen. Access from this side is at the end of Hake Street - drive past the pony club and park near the 'Arawang' sign.
Ethic inherited from Cooleman Ridge Bouldering
While some of the harder climbs on the ridge were created by chipping, where previously no climb was possible, please leave your chisels at home. There are not so many climbs at the higher grades that they should be brought down to lower levels!

Sit start, climb arete and top out.
Up the side of the split cherry.
Around the other side of the split cherry (#38).
Sit start, around the back end of a boulder that looks like a split cherry, but is not the split cherry. Nicely compressive and balancy, but only a move or two in it.
Sit start. Eliminate - do not go left, keep to the blunt arete. Not bad.
