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. Access from this side is at the end of Hake Street - drive past the pony club and park near the 'Arawang' sign.
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.
