Boulder holding #46 and #47.

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
V3 #45 Boulder 2m

Sit start the arete. Crimpy.

US V7 Blind Man Boulder 3m

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.

US V4 #46 Boulder 3m

At the far side of the boulder, slab your way up through tenuous holds.

US V5 #47 Boulder 3m

Pure slab, very tenuous. Follow the tiny seam upwards.

V3 Stevie Boulder

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.

V5 Ray Boulder

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.

V3 #48 Boulder

Around the corner from the best crack climb on the Ridge, this is yet another slabby semi-highball.

V3 #49 Boulder

Nearly vertical slab. The blunt arete.

V3 ** #50 Boulder 5m

Vertical slab! Enough holds on top - just. If you're brave you'll mantel it.

V1 #51 Boulder

One of the taller problems on the Ridge, this is a lovely crack, and great for a bit of practice if you're a burgeoning crack fiend.

V3 ** #52 Boulder 5m

Another slab, one of the more highball problems on the ridge. Could stem it.

V1 #53 Boulder

Layback problem. Bit scary up top.

V2 #54 Boulder

A slightly more forgiving angle than the other slabs around Sun Blocks, and a little shorter, this is still no easybeat.
