Harbour Side Slabs

Who knew there was some slab bouldering right on the harbour!? Whether or not you love friction and tiny crimps, this is one spot worth checking out especially for "Oh Man, Oh Man, Oh Man" V4 *

Harbour Side Slabs
The Steel Cap Slabs

These slabs are a unique addition to some solid bouldering found on the North Shore! Characterised by ~5m high problems full of delicate pinches and ledges.

Bring a healthy dose of balance and a scrubbing brush especially if there has been rain in the past 2-4 days

Routes described from right to left.

Harbour Side Slabs The Steel Cap Slabs
Open Project 1

Open for one who has vision

V1 Easy Day's Work

Start one metre to the right of the arete and keep your hands off this arete for the duration of the problem - holds on the slab only * Historical FA: Unknown * Documented FA: Alec, 2014

V3 Ministry Of The Left

At the first Slab you come to start at the right hand side of the left arete. Undercling and side pull your way up and then enjoy the technical moves of this arete problem

From top to bottom the left hand is bound to the arete, while the right hand and both feet are free to wander!

Love the laybacks, delicate smears and some cool problem solving!

  • Documented FA: Ranger Dave Archer, 2013
V4 Oh Man, Oh Man, Oh Man

A beautiful climb with minimal holds requiring some dedicated core strength and balance. For all lovers of laybacking!

At the sharp arete of the first slab you come to, start on the left side, using the corner and its features to reach the top. The holds are predominantly on the left of the arete but the climb utilises the holds on the right face within 30cm of the arete.

Balance, Dedication and a satisfying finish!

  • Historical FA: Unknown
  • Documented FA: Ranger Dave Archer, 2013
V2 Freedom Of The Feet

After completing AOS, continue along the slab utilising your core strength, balance and the tiny footers and limited holds on offer until you reach the far side.

  • Historical FA: Unknown
  • Documented FA: Brendon Flanagan, 2013
V2 Arete of Sweat

Start one meter left of the sharp arete with a solid undercling. Move up to the slotted crack line and head right, loving the arete as you navigate to the other side. Finish with your body resting on the slab side, 1m right of the arete.

Just the start of an epic traverse!

  • Historical FA: Unknown
  • Documented FA: Ranger Dave Archer, 2013
V1 Meanterthal

To the right of FLAA, none of which's holds are permitted. Straight up the chimney-like orange section of the wall, traversing across for top out on the big ledge common to all climbs to the left

  • Historical FA: Unknown
  • Documented FA: Alec, 2014
V3 A Face Like An Anvell

You'll need to hit this one hard with big moves, but the holds aren't as lovely as they seem

Start 1m right of the arete in the Scoop.

Without using the arete to the left or the holds on the orange streak to the right, power up using the side pulls, sloping pinch and some solid reach

Finish on the ledge common to all the slab problems and then down climb via the method of your choice

  • Historical FA: Unknown
  • Documented FA: Ranger Dave Archer, 2013
V2 Hammer And Tongs

Some Arete practice before attacking "Oh Man, Oh Man, Oh Man"

Start in front of the same arete used by "United By Brushes". Using only the arete for your hands and feet flow up to finish at the dominant ledge line common to all the other slab climbs.

Some fun problem solving with pinches and laybacks

  • Historical FA: Unknown
  • Documented FA: Ranger Dave Archer, 2014
V2 Honey Filled Centre Extension

The extension of 'BMT' around the arete to 'M'. A bit hairy negotiating the arete above the concrete drain.

  • Historical FA: Unknown
  • Documented FA: Scott B, 2017
V2 United By Brushes

A thin, balancing climb that offers great satisfaction on the holds.

Follow the thin crimpers and bumps up the left side of the slab arete, using the holds on the arete to support your climb.

Finish the climb by getting both hands on the solid ledge line.

Down climb via 'Stone Cold Steel Caps'

  • Historical FA: Unknown
  • Documented FA: Ranger Dave Archer, 2013
V3 Brothers In Chalk

Some awesome balancing slab, full of commitment and trust!

Start facing the orange vertical streak about 1m left of the corner. Using some of the left most holds of "United By Brushes" and some thin, delicate bumps and pinches move up.

At the large ledge with the carved out indent the problem moves right to mingle with UBB. Here the large carved out area and the ledge is out of bounds! Use only the holds to the right along this ledge line to keep the grade!

Down climb the same you went up or via SCSC

  • Historical FA: Unknown
  • Documented FA: Ranger Dave Archer, 2013
V1 Can You Feel The Bromance!

Start 1 meter left of BIC. Head stright up finishing at SCSC. Crimpy, smeary and exciting. Enjoy the down climb!

  • Historical FA: Unknown
  • Documented FA: Brendon Flanagan, 2013
V0 Stone Cold Steel Caps

First FA in the area, done on a wet day in steel cap boots.

A good warm up to give your first climb confidence in the rock.

Start ~2m left from the arete, right were the ground leave rises.

Follow the large cuttings up to the first horizontal line of solid holds. From here move right and then up to keep following the man made cuttings until you reach the dominant ledge.

Down climb the same way you got up.

You'll get good at doing this climb in reverse as its the best way to down climb (without a challenge!)

  • Historical FA: Unknown
  • Documented FA: Ranger Dave Archer, 2013
V1 Supination of The Right Wrist

Start the same as for Stone Cold Steel Caps. Instead of tending right as for SCSC head straight up and finish by touching the same ledge that SCSC finishes on. All big cuttings are out of bounds!!!!

  • Historical FA: Unknown
  • Documented FA: Brendon Flanagan, 2013
V1 Over Easy And Liking It

Start half a meter to the left of SCSC where the ground rises and work your way up through the lichen using some nice hidden crimpers.

Smooth moves and a focus eye required!

Finish at the solid ledge and down climb where desired

  • Historical FA: Unknown
  • Documented FA: Ranger Dave Archer, 2013
V2 The First Cuts The Deepest

A lovely (if slight soft) V2 start using some great thin pinches and crimps

Navigate your way up through the lichen on the interesting, half invisible holds.

Finish using the flake to match hands on the grass adorned upper ledge

  • Historical FA: Unknown
  • Documented FA: Ranger Dave Archer, 2013
V1 A Slathering Of Slabs

start 1m right of "White Man Can't Slab" and head up and left using the solid ledges.

Work the side pulls at the top to reach the finishing ledge (at the tree line). Down climb to finish

  • Historical FA: Unknown
  • Documented FA: Ranger Dave Archer, 2013
V0+ White Man Can't Slab

Good holds and footers at the start while becoming more committing the higher you send.

  • Historical FA: Unknown
  • Documented FA: Ranger Dave Archer, 2013
V0+ Butter Menthol Thief

A fun line doing a balancy traverse from 'WMCS' this all the way to 'UBB'. Nice moves on the face.

  • Historical FA: Unknown
  • Documented FA: Scott B, Ryan L, 2017
Harbour Side Slabs
Thrupp's Wall

It's not a Slab?

Some average bouldering problems at the base of a wall with decent height but with a choss filled center!

This wall does hold water a day or two after rain.

All said and done, it's an ok spot for some play.

DYNO - start with hands in front and legs on the wall. Power up to the obvious ledge line. One move wonder.
