Amazing climbing, some shade in summer on the backside.


Still on the left side of the gully (when looking up the gully), about ten minutes from the road. You'll pass Paydirt and Third Turd on the way here - keep walking the path of least resistance along the gully, they are all around the same level on the hill.

Ethic inherited from Elderslie Bouldering

Most of the bouldering in this area is on relatively soft sandstone. This can, in case of recent rain or general dampness, lead to easy breaking of holds. Hence when climbing in this area on a wet or damp day, be careful not to break any important holds.
