Did you know that you can create an account to record, track and share your climbing ascents? Thousands of climbers are already doing this.


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!
