Description

A modest, pumpy collection of sit starts with a good range of grades.

Found on a tear drop shaped patch of land with 270deg of water front views, Super 8 is a fun little bouldering crag offering some modest problems.

With 7 sit starts and one sustained traverse, the grades range from V1 to V4 and pack a good array of under clings, heel hooks that top out with slopers and crimps

Approach

Driving down Henley Marine Drive, turn into Rodd Park where there is a boat club, about 1 billion people running and some exposed rock. From the Car park walk into Rodd Park to the point furthest away from the road.

Doing so will inevitably send you crashing over the top of “Super 8”, which funnily enough is the chunk of Rock right next to the GIANT 8 Knots sign.

History

Another crag brought to you by Ranger Dave in 2012. On the back of Brendon "The Heel" Flanagan discovering the Ergo Wall, Dave while a bouldering there did spy this pumpy cave like structure and was inspired to get his butt sandy!

This crag is a product of the great bouldering boom!
