Hola boulderers! Whoever said Spanish lessons and bouldering can't be combined was wrong! An amazing patch of rock offering some fun but testing problems. Be it traversing, lowballing or a touch of highball, this place can offer you hours of entertainment with great views and some grassy landings.

Chalk up, climb on and live the dream!

Descent Notes

All problems except for 11 and 14 MUST be down climbed to achieve the tick.

History

One cool 2012 autumn morning Brendon Flanagan went in search of a quick and fun hands on rock time. With hot java in hand he went on an early morning search and climb mission. A piece of rock was discovered and in three blinks of an eye Pyrmont Spanish Lessons was born. Even Brendon knew it didn't hold a flame to Lindfield or The Baulkins but it was local and more importantly it was time on rock.

This crag is a product of the great bouldering boom!

Chalk up, climb on and live the dream!
