Ethic inherited from Pretty Beach

Clean up after yourselves, and any rubbish you find take home with you. Don't use huge tick marks, and brush your holds and tick marks off when you leave. Be polite to anyone who comes asking, you never know, they might get involved and be your next best spotter.

The first area you'll come to from the scree slope.

Closed Project

Sit start laybacking the arete, feet on the semi-detached block over the gap, follow up the arete through a technical top and finish it off.

FA: Nick Murphy, 10 May

Quite a nice problem.

Sit start laybacking off the sidepulls, reach up to the horizontal rail, then the next one, and the one after that, and then hit the top.

FA: Nick Murphy, 10 May

Deceptively difficult start. Lay down underneath the edge of the overhang, find the vertical three finger pocket with your left hand under the roof, right hand on the disc-shaped face crimp, work out the weird feet, throw straight up right hand for the slanting rail, fall on your back, repeat twenty times until you finally grovel your way up to the two small face jugs, dab the pad, curse....a lot, start again, and one day you'll make it to the top, a lot bloodier and grazed than when you started, well done! (may or may not be a recount of the actual FA)

FA: Nick Murphy, 10 May

Sit start on the jug below the overhanging arete in the little cave. Pop straight up to the giant jug flake, don't dab the several rocks around you, bust to the top, don't dab again, then top out.

FA: Nick Murphy, 10 May

Sit start from the jug on the overhanging arete in the little cave area. Go left to the crimps, and head up using the big sidepull. Dynamic and powerful

FA: Nick Murphy, 10 May

Closed Project

Careful, or it'll get you too....

Sit start with both hands squeezing the blade arete, feet straddling either side, grovel up being careful your feet don't slip, check all is well and continue up the blade to the top corner.

FA: Nick Murphy, 10 May

The easier of the three slopey problems on this boulder.

Sit start at the bottom of the arete, will be harder for short people if they can't reach the big ledge to begin with. Follow up from this and trend right for the top out.

FA: Nick Murphy, 10 May

Sit start off slopey rail with poor feet. Power up to the rails above, trending slightly right until topping out in the middle of the wall.

FA: Nick Murphy, 10 May

Great fun.

Sit start carefully above the puddle with hands in the jug rail, throw right for slopers and follow up the arete sloping and slapping until you top out.

FA: Nick Murphy, 10 May

The two faces with the block splitter stuck between them looking almost like two wings. Marks the southern end of the 'Blocks And Caves' area.

Sit Start. Pull on using sidepulls and face crimps and trend right following main rightwards seam.

FA: Nick Murphy, 10 May

Same sit start as 'Crossing The Grater Divide', but instead just go straight up the easy way.

FA: Nick Murphy, 10 May

Gets two stars just for being awkward and funky fun.

Sit underneath the central block, gripping the underside blade, feet on whatever walls around you then just thrust up the sides of the 'V' until you can pull up over the top.

FA: Nick Murphy, 10 May

Sit start either laybacking the arete, or off the sidepulls. Follow up the arete then trend left to the tallest point of the wall.

Was done 3 different ways by FA so however you do it is good!

FA: Nick Murphy, 10 May

The small low wall above the 'Wings Of Rock Boulder' that faces out to the water.

So must be called Jupiter.

Sit start with hands on the long flake, heading up the open weakness to top out.

FA: Nick Murphy, 24 May

Sit start between the corner and the long flake with hands in the horizontal break, pop up onto slopers and top out.

FA: Nick Murphy, 24 May

Sit start stretched around the arete using the corner crack and flake to pull yourself to the top.

FA: Nick Murphy, 24 May

Closed Project

The large obvious boulder that can be seen from all along this beach. Holds a few great tall lines.

Fun easy highball but with a hard start.

Sit start at the base of the long diagonal crack at the bottom right, using the pocket and the crack pull up and around the blunt arete onto the face and head straight up the tallest part of the wall, and watch your headspace!

FA: Nick Murphy, 10 May

Sit start in the bottom of the small corner, pull up and stand into this for a totally necessary hands free rest. Head up past the loose looking block (so far testing has not moved it at all) and then follow the crack up over to the right to then stand on top.

FA: Nick Murphy, 24 May

Sit start with hands on the sidepulls in the crack with poor feet, move up and follow the crack and top out over the block on top

FA: Nick Murphy, 24 May

Yeah, work out what that name means.

Slightly shorter and nicer than some of the others on this block, definitely the cruisiest of the bunch.

Sit start on the triangle block, hands on the flat edge with decent feet. Stand up and use the jugs and cracks to get to the crack leading to the small tree.

FA: Nick Murphy, 24 May

Sit start with hands on the spike, move up off this to follow up the arete and continue with it as it goes right till topping out.

FA: Nick Murphy, 24 May

Sit start at the base of the thin corner, smearing against the slab to the right. Stay with it and don't pull too hard until you're over the top.

FA: Nick Murphy, 24 May

A fun climb to get adjusted to the taller problems of the area.

Sit start with hands on the juggy block, press send from this and follow up the arete and crack until you're over the top.

FA: Nick Murphy, 24 May

On the backside of 'The Crazy Eighty-Eights', the jam crack that then trends right onto the face using flakes to stand on top of 'Intersecting Lines Boulder.

FA: Nick Murphy, 24 May

Another great beginners problem, as well as being an easy descent from over the backside from the other problems nearby.

Sit start in the same spot (hands on the juggy block at the base of the crack) as 'The Crazy Eighty-Eights' but follow right along the big crack until in the corner.

FA: Nick Murphy, 24 May

A great boulder with a few steep but easier lines on it.

Climbing up one of the descents, but a fun addition anyway.

Lay off the arete and throw for the jugs above to the right and top out.

FA: Nick Murphy, 24 May

A steep problem with great moves.

Sit start with hands on the horizontal flat edges (shorties may have to crouch start) and punch left to the central horn, using the arete as well and topping out on the very tippy pointy top.

Potential for a lower start using the sidepull and adding a couple of grades.

FA: Nick Murphy, 24 May

Sit start with the thin crimps throwing up to the right to the horn, then follow left along the seam to the arete and top out over the point.

FA: Nick Murphy, 24 May

The continuation of 'Intersecting Lines Boulder' and walls. Some problems that'll have you thankful by the time you pull over the top.

Sit start around the rounded arete, pulling up off the flakes, slopes until you hit the upside down flake, balancing all the time unto you're onto the good holds at the top.

Not sure what the name means? You might know by the time you're at the top.

FA: Nick Murphy, 24 May

Stand start by walking up the ramp into the corner crack, follow up this using what you can until over the top. Be wary of the large block at the top though, it may not be secure. There is a large jug just above it though.

FA: Nick Murphy, 24 May

Stand start pulling up onto the face with the underclings, then hanging off the flake crimps until you can reach up to the triangle and pull over the top. Sit down on the top and get some oxygen back into your head.

FA: Nick Murphy, 24 May

For those who've seen the Spongebob Squarepants movie will get this reference.

Sit start with the jug block on the arete, go through the opposing holds until onto the broad flat section and work it out.

FA: Nick Murphy, 24 May

Why's it called that you ask? Because you don't need your hands!

First ascent done hands free, so why not try yourself!

Sit on the boulder at the base of this face, stand up onto the block, then work your way up the edges and knobs till topping out.

FA: Nick Murphy, 24 May

Low wall opposite to 'Pre Your Syncope Wall'

Sit start using the rising crack and aim for the slopers over the top.

FA: Nick Murphy, 24 May

Zigging and Zagging your way across the cracks and then onto the slopes above.

Start with hands in the middle of the wall, trend right a little and then up beside the bulge. Sneaky holds all over here so keep your eyes peeled.

FA: Nick Murphy, 24 May

Start off the jugs in the crack a little up and right of the block at the base of the wall on the left. Head right and then over the angle change onto the slab finding the slopes to make your way out.

FA: Nick Murphy, 24 May

Easy as bru! Just don't tell the kids the full name. Wander up the ramp as it gets steeper until standing on top.

FA: Nick Murphy, 24 May

None in the rock thankfully!

The blades and cracks to the right of 'The Wiggles Whaling Troop'. Sit start going straight up til top out.

FA: Nick Murphy, 24 May

Sit start using the crimp rail, go from this balancing up and dive for the top. Will be hard for the height impaired.

FA: Nick Murphy, 24 May

Sit start a little under the boulder with hands on the rail below the big pocket. Use the pocket, crack and rails to get up.

FA: Nick Murphy, 24 May

Closed Project

Sit start on the angled rail and head up through the various holds to top out. Watch the boulder behind you as you get higher.

FA: Nick Murphy, 24 May

Starting with hands just up from where the seam turns over the edge, pull up from here and traverse up and left until nearing the very top and mantle out where the crack opens up.

FA: Nick Murphy, 24 May

The last of the blocks for this area.

Closed Project

Sit start underneath the uphill face. Use the sidepull pockets to the right, and whatever you can find for you left and make one hard move to the jug rails. Mantle over the top and call it a day.
