Kingdom Boulders

Access issues inherited from Mt Alexander

Most of Mt. Alexander is a regional (not national) park, so while climbing is permitted general rules apply; dogs are permitted on leash, fires only in established fire places (from Parks Victoria website).

Approach

The Kingdom Boulders is on the right side of Joseph Young drive between Artful Dodger area and the summit. It is obvious by the road near an old quarry.

Stand start up the left arete.

FA: Peter Reynolds & Peter Reynolds, 2012

Climb the central line.

FA: Peter Reynolds & Peter Reynolds, 2012

Sit start and climb the arete. Don't go too far onto the left face and use the jugs/cracks.

FA: Peter Reynolds & Peter Reynolds, 2012

Stand start and climb the slab and groove. The crux is topping out on small holds and slopers, before reaching left to a good hold. A great line.

FA: Peter Reynolds & Peter Reynolds, 27 Jan 2015

Sit start and climb the crack around the corner from 'Pemberley'.

FA: Peter Reynolds & Peter Reynolds, 27 Jan 2015

Sit start using arete and crack feature to top out straight up. Note the climb down is probably harder than the climb up.

Sit start and climb up the groove.

FA: Peter Reynolds & Peter Reynolds, 2014

Short but sweet

FA: Hiro Nishikawa, 27 Sep 2014

Stand start off large sidepull and swing left

FA: Peter Reynolds & Peter Reynolds, 23 Dec 2012

Up the easy wall.

FA: Peter Reynolds & Peter Reynolds, 23 Dec 2012

A bit committing slab problem.

To the right of step up left.

Climb the wide crack

FA: Peter Reynolds & Peter Reynolds, 2009

Climb the slab.

FA: Ash Sankey, 4 Feb 2015

Stand start on the edge of the slab and make a big rockover. Finish up Slurpee Chucker.

FA: Peter Reynolds, 4 Feb 2015

Climb the obvious slab on the boulder to the right of the Her Majesty boulder.

FA: Ash Sankey, 4 Feb 2015

sitstart and make the low traverse leftwards on the overhanging arête on coarse holds until the end of the arete and then make a big move up and right to jugs. Finish there.

FA: Peter Reynolds & Peter Reynolds, 5 Feb 2012

Stand-start about half way up with a good crimp for the right hand on the face and left hand on/near the arete. Climb the arete. Don't step on the adjacent boulder at the top.

FA: Peter Reynolds & Peter Reynolds, 2013

Sit-start and climb the arete left of Scar Issue. Start straddled and then rock around to the right-hand side after a few moves.

FA: Peter Reynolds, 15 Aug

Sit-start to Dark Scar but really it's a different problem - only one of the handholds and footholds is shared between the two problems. Start on the left-hand sidepull and right crimp. Move up to the obvious crimp with the right hand, nice footwork then allows the higher left-hand crimp to be reached. From here launch up and right with the right hand to where the lip flattens out (where the water bottle is in the photo). You could cheat and grab the left arete - don't do that! You can use the big foothold near the arete though - that's fine. A nice addition.

FA: Peter Reynolds, 15 Aug

Stand-start at left hand end of the smooth overhanging wall. Pull off ground, hold the position stable and then move directly to top and mantle over. One move wonder.

FA: Peter Reynolds & Peter Reynolds, 5 Feb 2012

Traverse left to right.

FA: Peter Reynolds & Peter Reynolds, 12 Feb 2012

FA: Peter Reynolds & Peter Reynolds, 12 Feb 2012

FA: Peter Reynolds & Peter Reynolds, 8 Dec 2013

Sit start. Straight up.
