Only a little distance along the ridge from the stacked boulders of split cherry/#41/#42, this is a nice little set of boulders starring some good mid-grade problems and a lovely crack climb. Climbs at Sun Blocks tend to be a little taller than the rest of the Ridge, and more slabby/technical than some.
The boulders with climbs number 49 to 53 on them.
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.
Follow the road to the split cherry area then walk across the ridge to where the hill starts to decline. Follow a line of boulders until you find the climb you're looking for.
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!

Hard sit start to a jump or very high step in a poor incut off a nasty and very sharp right hand crimp. Hold it and top out.
At the far side of the boulder, slab your way up through tenuous holds.
Pure slab, very tenuous. Follow the tiny seam upwards.
Similar to Ray, this problem can be desperate or feel deceptively easy depending how you approach it - go straight up, do not deviate. Sit start doesn't change the grade much but add 1 if you go straight over without using the crack.
A fairly odd problem. Nothing for feet - and don't use the rest boulder right behind it! Very burly. A heel hook may help you. From a sit. Go around or straight over.
