Towards the port from The Lighthouse Boulders via an easy rock-hopping scramble is a collection of pristine boulders ripe for the pickings. A good selection of easy lowballs through to epic highball projects. Great for an arvo sesh.

Sit start. Dabby...

Up the rough slab. Bit of exposure.

Stand start with the triangular hold. Up. Fun and easy

Sit start with jug. Straight up.

Sit start. Up compressing the feature trending left. fun.

FA: Michael Taran, 11 Dec 2019

Up the obvious highball prow. Enough good holds to be doable - just a bit daunting with the landing

Sit start with pockets. Up to jugs then onto the slab.

FA: Woody133, 29 Dec 2019

Start as Kingslayer but head straight up with a heinous move to a sharp crimp

FA: Woody133, 23 Nov 2019

Low start avoiding the kickboard, using low vertical left crimp and flat right hand crimp. Squeeze your way up the fin avoiding the dab. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qtG-8wKiskA

FA: Michael Taran, 11 Jan 2020

Sit start with crimps and left arete. Up using the kickboard rock.

Sit start with crimps. One hard deadpoint up. Avoid the kickboard down low for feet. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qtG-8wKiskA

FA: Michael Taran, Mar 2019

Sit start as 'War Zone' but use the kickboard for feet.

Stand start on obvious crimp up high on the face. Up to the lip. If you are shorter it will be a jump start and closer to V3.

FA: Michael Taran, Mar 2019

Start on the low crimp on the left and a non-existent rigth hand gaston. Paste on your feet and blast for the stand.

The right arete. Possible?

Sit start down low in the hole. Up the obvious crack. Highball with an awkward landing

FA: Kym.H, 4 Jan 2020

Highball...but strangely appealing. So...it's treason then?

Stand start. Up using the arete and left face. Tenuous and smeary feet. Disconcertingly close to the drink...

FA: Michael Taran, 31 Dec 2019

Sit start with arete and low flake on the right face. Up to dunk the slopey lip. Balancy and rad.

FA: Michael Taran, 26 Nov 2019

Sit start as for 'The Communist Manifesto' - then make a delicate traverse left to gain the arete and finish as 'Hung Parliament'.

FA: Michael Taran, 11 Jan 2020

FA: Michael Taran, 8 Dec 2019

FA: Michael Taran, 8 Dec 2019

The low start for ‘The Upper House’. A bit contrived. Start with both hands on the flat edges under the roof. Burly moves up the vertical crack.
