Description

A small but worthwhile outcrop located at the tip of Callan Point that holds some of the best bouldering in the area. The grassy landing and full afternoon sun makes the small overhang an excellent place to enjoy a couple of hours outdoors

The crag gets sun from late morning til sunset and is protected from the wind on the bay. Feel free to tape your fingers up before attacking the problems as the rock's rough and can take chunks out of your fingers if you're not careful!

Whatever you do don't let this deter you from this crag, the problems are well worth the effort!

Climbs are described from left to right facing the boulder.

Approach

The crag is best approached from Waterfront Drive.

History

A young climbing princess from the Czech Republic going by the name of Radka was found by the developer at the crag one sunny summer afternoon. With chalk on her hands, a smile on her face and her glass climbing shoes on, young Radka was enjoying what the crag had on offer. The pumped Czech princess mentioned that the crag was like a wonderful and mystical margin. The developer didn't understand what she meant, and only partially because of her accent. As the Czech princess chalked up and bouldered on she continued her fairy tale by saying there was a well defined boarder, in her magical eyes, between the water and the rock. After standing there scratching his head in wonder and planting some beans he just bought from a man on the side of the road, the developer decided that an AKA had been born for Callan Point. And just like all good Czech fairy tales, everybody chalked up, climbed on and lived happily ever after. The End.

Crag developed by Brendon Flanagan in 2012 as a lead up to the great bouldering boom!

Chalk up, climb on and live the dream!

Awesome roof moves finished with a demanding top out - enough so to deserve its own problem

Sit start same as Sky Rockets, follow the roof holds but at dominant letter box head straight up using the rounded arete

All face holds to the right and left of the letter box are out

A committing finish!
