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. Parking for access from this side is on Hake Street.

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!

Grade Route
V5 #38 Boulder

Sit start.

V2 #39 Boulder

Up the side of the split cherry.

US V0+ Cherry Pip Boulder 3m

Around the other side of the split cherry (#38).

V3 Unnamed problem Boulder 2m

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.

V0+ Distillation Boulder 3m

Sit start. Eliminate - do not go left, keep to the blunt arete. Not bad.

V2 #40 Boulder

Sit start traverse, boulder close to the split cherry.

V2 #42 Boulder

Not a hugely difficult climb for the grade!

V1 #43 Boulder 2m

Boulder right near number 41/42, under the shade of the tree. Straight up the arete from a sit-start.
