These nice boulders are one of the best spots for after work bouldering in Hobart. They also stay reasonably warm on winter afternoons, but seep after heavy rain.
Be careful of the rock here after rain - quite a few holds have broken off when they have been damp.
The small boulder to the left of the main face has a couple of short and very easy problems good for absolute beginners or kids.
Please wear appropriate footwear (climbing shoes or soft-soled shoes). Boots and crampons will scratch the rock.
Follow the map and park where marked, at the gate off Aruma St. Walk up the road to the reservoir. Skirt around on the left and follow some dirt tracks to directly behind the reservoir. The top of the boulder is another 20 - 30 meters just before the hill drops off, facing down the hill towards the highway. The rock is a little sandy in places, but the access is very easy, so its worth a look.
Start at right side of face, up and slightly left to jug then straight up left side of groove to top out
Start as for Mr Blonde, but go right up seam then up right side of groove to desperate top out.
Start as for Mr. Blonde but traverse rightwards on thin holds along lip to finish up Reservoir Dogs
Up diagonal crack from awkward sitstart, either on slopers or underclings. Most people use the big flat sloper on Reservoir Dogs as well.
Start as for Nice Guy Eddie, at the start of the crack. Move up to side pull / underclings in crack then straight up using sandy pinch. Up to lip then exit up right.
Sit start on the big flat slope and up. Pretty solid V3,...apparently graded in according to international standards.
Start as for Reservoir Dogs, head right and up to slopey crimp, do reachy move to the right traversing into and finish for Dis-Abeled.
Sit start on the jug, climb straight up, avoiding the left hand diagonal. Can be done as a stand start at about V3.
Start as for Scorpions, traverse left and finish up Reservoir Dogs, may be easier in the cold.
Sit start up rib and bridge up left corner to top. Don't reach right.
Climb the slab and corner just to the right of Scorpions
Up nose right of Slab/Corner.
Using only the slab, and avoiding the crack and above at all costs.
FA: Chris Lang
"Just stay in the crack" he says. Humourously contrived.
FFA: Merlin Buchauer, 9th Dec
Up left side of slab. Don't use crack on the left.
Up the centre of slab.
Up the right side of slab, avoid using right hand lay-aways.
