Description

Numerous large boulders scattered throughout gorge. Here lies a list of the majority of the ones climbed so far that are worth trekking to

Approach

Access the gorge via the dirt drive at the end of the Barron gorge road. Park at the carpark and walk down track under the bridge and beyond the power station. Follow central mini rydge lines formed by the flow of the river in flood until a grass area is reached. Follow slight path through grass and over further boulders until you come down from 5m wall. Here begins the climbs in the Boulder Field.

History

Radiation Wall sits near, as does the large Pool at the base of the Barron Falls ahead about 500m around corner. Worth trekking to for some nice rock and falls and swimming. Be careful of slippery rock in the Gorge and of loose rock under feat as you are walking. TAKE ALL RUBBISH AWAY WITH YOU

Stand start L of arete. Move from large edges through blank flace using small crimps and arete to gain high features near lip.

Harder if short.. Move through large edges, high small crimp and sidepull flake (solid?).

FA: Cameron Wycherley, Oct 2017

Stand start on with obvious ledges. Move up to good edges and into high undercling. Possibly a little height dependent

FA: Cameron Wycherley, 15 Oct 2017

Sit start at base of arete on blocky features, up through small slopey edges and better features up high.

FA: Cameron Wycherley, Oct 2017

Sit start with low big edge and move up through crack feature.

FA: Cameron Wycherley, Oct 2017

Sit start low, moving up into crack feature with finger locks and cool windy moves.

FA: Cameron Wycherley, Oct 2017

Stand start at obvious ledge. High step and mantle to gain high features near lip. Avoid features on lower arete.

FA: Cameron Wycherley, Oct 2017

EDIT: Recent floods appear to have washed away the start holds. Sit start with small LH sidepull crimp and RH crimp. Up through cystal crimp features, to flake. Top out out on series of shallow slopey holds.

FA: Cameron Wycherley, Oct 2017

Start low and matched on pocket. Head out left to an awkward finish on slopers.

FA: Cameron Wycherley, Oct 2017

Sit start matched on pocket as for adjacent route. Move through the steepness up R on pockets and good holds. A nice easy line to get a taste of some overhung goodness.

FA: Cameron Wycherley, Oct 2017

Similar too Craving caves except for before moving to the right of the boulder at the end of the climb, go direct up through the middle. Find the well placed but oddly angled holds, will get you through.

Mantle goodness!! Sit start on opposing side pulls in centre of face. Make a long move to the diagonal edge, then push to crack before a committing mantle high off the deck, on the smoooooth sloping ramp. Variant finish: Continue traversing R along top slopey edge to top out at arete (to be done). Note: Sit start added 9/7/18 by Hugo Leroy.

FA: Cameron Wycherley, 15 Oct 2017

Start on two obvious slopey features on side face of boulder. Move into jug and traverse up and L along slopey edges to top out at highest point.

Sit start at arete and move through good holds up and R. Top out high

FA: Cameron Wycherley, 15 Oct 2017

Start with series of jugs, heading up before making long moves through the blank section to holds near the lip. Top out at high point.

FA: Cameron Wycherley, 15 Oct 2017

Sit start, moving directly up from the obvious good edge, through the prominent boomerang shaped feature, to top out on crimps over the lip.

FA: Hugo Leroy, 9 Jul

Sit start at base of arete with RH crimp sidepull, and LH crimp on main face. Pull a long move into crimp on face, before topping out on a good hold.

Compression climbing directly up the prominent fridge feature.

FA: Hugo Leroy, 9 Jul

On the clean vertical face approximately 1.5m to the right of the obvious corner crack, through series of pocketed crimps. Good clean face climbing.
