Description

A small boulder offering some limited overhang problems inside a cave. Please be mindful of the neighbors to the left (facing) of the boulder as it can look straight into their small, yet private courtyard. The boulder is also surrounded by a landscaped garden so show all due respect to it. Keep the noise to a minimum so good relations are maintained between the residents and the climbing community. This boulder is only worth visiting if you're a strandard local who wants a fun overhanging work out. Pyrmont Spider Pig Boulder needs a little more traffic to eliminate the remaining choss. Once cleaned up a bit it'll offer some good clean fun.

Approach

Drive to the end of Distillery Drive in Pyrmont. Turn left and park in the unit car park. No signs for 'Residents Only Parking'. Jump the barrier to the far left of the car park and make your way down the path and steps. Boulder is the obvious piece of rock to the right of the stairs. Or Alternatively, You can enter from the street at the front using the stairs to the left and walking back to the right.

Chalk up, climb on and live the dream!

History

This entire area use to be an industrial site with artifacts scattered around by the developers who built the multitude of high rise apartments. One day in November 2012 Brendon Flanagan was riding his bike over the ANZAC Bridge and saw this lttle crop of rock. It only took him 2 months to finally do something about it.
