sit start problem on thin crack on left near "cave" to mossy topout

Boulder 2m

Small sloper traverse on wedge shaped boulder to the right of main group. Sit start on distinctive fang then up and right to arete topout.

FA: Stu & Mike, 2009

Boulder
V1 Peeling Onions (sit start)

On boulder down hill from main group towards Pony boulders. Avoid obvious loose block. Route just right of Here's Lucy on back of boulder.

Boulder

On boulder down hill from main group towards Pony boulders. Avoid obvious loose block. Route on short overhung face of LHS facing fire trail.

Boulder
V2 #78
Boulder 4m
V5 Jacked Bojack

Sit start and grunt your way up along the arete and using a few oppositional holds.

FA: David Nott

Boulder 4m
V2 Jacked Bojack Stand

Stand start the arete.

Boulder 4m
V0 #76

A nice little jaunt onto a jug.

Boulder 4m
V0 #75

SlabLyfe.

Boulder 4m
V1 #74

Undercling on smears and up. Left hand closer to V1, right hand more like V2.

Boulder 4m
V3 #73

Cute little climb with a few suspect flakes. Sit start out right on rounded side pulls and head left onto good footholds and easily topout.

Boulder 3m
V1 V1

Start with both hands on crimp rail on left-hand side of face to the left of #73, heel around left, move left to pinch on arete and to jug then top.

Boulder 2m
#72 no hands

Is it a climb if you don't use your hands? Or just a steep walk?

Boulder 2m
V6 Chipped Frankenstein's Monster

Start as for Frankenstein, head up Hades and then continue left to finish directly above the big pocket on Zeus.

Boulder 3m
V8 Chipped Frankenstein

Sit start jug right hand arete, traverse leftwards into Ares finishing up the latter.

Set: Justin Ryan, 2012

Boulder 6m
V4 Chipped Hades RH Variant

Same sit start as Hades, then trend right to arete, heel hook up and edge your way onto positive holds around the blunt arete. Top out from there.

Boulder 3m
V6 Chipped Hades

Sit start on low side-pulls then straight up using pockets and edges to slopey top out.

Boulder 3m
V8 Chipped Zeus

Probably the best face climb on the Ridge. Powerful and delicate, requiring great body tension and with a demanding topout.

Set: Justin Ryan, 2008

Boulder 3m
V7 Zeusenstein

Sit start Zeus, finish up Ares, same way Frankenstein does.

Essentially a shorter version of Frankenstein without the large span move that makes Frankenstein improbable for short armed folks. Harder than Ares, a touch easier than Frankenstein. Quite a worthwhile link up, probably been done before but adding here for the record.

Boulder 4m
V8 Horse Stories

Sit start at Ares, traverse right and then finish up Hades.

FA: Nick White, 4 Jul 2021

Boulder 5m
V6 Ares

Sit start, climb vague corner and top out. Watch your back.

Boulder 3m
V2 #69

In between the chipped climbs. Quite overhung climbing on sloped holds. Watch your back.

Boulder 3m
V8 Chipped Diesel Power

Sit start using left side pull and right chipped two finger pocket. Climb bulge and top out.

Boulder 3m
V9 Nuclear Power

Diesel Power without the chipped holds. Sit start using right hand gaston and left hand on vague arete. Climb bulge and top out. No stacking pads.

FA: Bevan Ashby, 29 May 2015

Boulder 3m
V2 Steep, Chipped, Arete Thingy RHV

Sit start using LH in the right most low chipped pocket and RH on right arete. Funky foot moves get you up the right arete to top out.

Boulder 2m
V6 Chipped #67 sit start eliminate

Same as #67 but eliminating the two aretes, instead going from the chipped holds to the incut before deadpointing to the top.

Boulder 2m
V4 Chipped #67 sit start

Completely chipped. Look for the chipped handholds. Photo is a bit misleading - it's about 60 degrees overhung and the first chipped handhold is a bit too low for most people! Starts on obvious chipped holds, then up using other chipped holds and the aretes.

Boulder 2m
V3 #66

A quality climb slapping up the arete from a sitstart.

Boulder 2m
V3 #65A

Sit start left side pull, climb face\arete and top out.

FA: Bevan Ashby, 14 May 2015

Boulder 4m
V1 #65
Boulder 3m
V2 Right of #64

A face climb, slapping the arete on the right. Techy.

Boulder 4m
V0 #64

Slabbity slab slab.

Boulder 3m
V1 #63 sit

Sit start to #63. Starts with left hand on arete and right hand on obvious side-pull.

Boulder 3m
V0 #63

Stay away from that crack!

Boulder 3m
V0 #62

Another slab problem. Using the crack makes it VBeginner.

Boulder 3m
V1 Direct between #61 and #62

Slabby and balancy.

Boulder 3m
V2 Traverse

Start for #61 and traverse right into pure slab territory. Hit the undercling and make your way up.

Boulder 3m
V0 #61

Balance problem, great training for slab climbs. Of course, friends don't let friends do slab.

Boulder 3m
Pony Boulders
V7 Cavers friend

Go around the back of the boulder with #56 find obvious hole crawl through and get squeezed. flip upside down and get a footjam, reach for a jug and mantle from lip. End up right of #56.

Boulder 5m
V2 #60

Sit start on left side of the obvious flake, then straight up flake to top.

Boulder 4m
V3 #59
Boulder 4m
V3 #58
Boulder 4m
V0 #57

Slightly easy for the grade - big holds and easy going. This is also the downclimb off the boulder.

Boulder 3m
V2 Left of #57

Straight up, match foot/hand in the midway crack while balancing. Don't go too far right.

Boulder 3m
V2 #56

A nice climb with plenty of holds and a finish that really gets the blood pumping.

Boulder 5m
V0 #55

Slabby V0 climb.

Boulder 5m
Sun Blocks
V2 #55

Sit start beneath right arete, climb up and top out.

Boulder 3m
V5 Sitmaster

Sit start from right side of roof, climb up and top out.

FA: Bevan Ashby, 27 Jul 2015

V5 One Fine Day

Sit start from lip of roof, climb up and top out.

FA: Bevan Ashby, 18 Jul 2015

Boulder 3m
V7 Up and Go

Sit start beneath vertical seam, climb seam and top out.

FA: Bevan Ashby, 13 Jul 2015

Boulder 3m
V2 #54

A slightly more forgiving angle than the other slabs around Sun Blocks, and a little shorter, this is still no easybeat.

Boulder
V1 #53

Layback problem. Bit scary up top.

Boulder 5m
V3 #52

Another slab, one of the more highball problems on the ridge. Could stem it.

Boulder 5m
V1 #51

One of the taller problems on the Ridge, this is a lovely crack, and great for a bit of practice if you're a burgeoning crack fiend.

Boulder 5m
V3 #50

Vertical slab! Enough holds on top - just. If you're brave you'll mantel it.

Boulder 5m
V3 #49

Nearly vertical slab. The blunt arete.

Boulder 4m
V3 #48

Around the corner from the best crack climb on the Ridge, this is yet another slabby semi-highball.

Boulder
V5 Ray

A fairly odd problem. Nothing for feet - and don't use the rest boulder right behind it! Very burly. A heel hook may help you. From a sit. Go around or straight over.

Boulder 3m
V3 Stevie

Similar to Ray, this problem can be desperate or feel deceptively easy depending how you approach it - go straight up, do not deviate. Sit start doesn't change the grade much but add 1 if you go straight over without using the crack.

Boulder 3m
V5 #47

Pure slab, very tenuous. Follow the tiny seam upwards.

Boulder 3m
V4 #46

At the far side of the boulder, slab your way up through tenuous holds.

Boulder 3m
V7 Blind Man

Hard sit start to a jump or very high step in a poor incut off a nasty and very sharp right hand crimp. Hold it and top out.

Boulder 3m
V3 #45

Sit start the arete. Crimpy.

Boulder 2m
Split Cherry
V2 Spacewalk

Sit start as for boulder #43, traverse out right, using anything reachable, topping out on the opposite side of the boulder.

Boulder 2m
V1 #43

Boulder right near number 41/42, under the shade of the tree. Straight up the arete from a sit-start.

Boulder 2m
V2 #42

Not a hugely difficult climb for the grade!

Boulder
V4 Hug like harambe

Sit start with left hand on vague arete and right hand on far sloper. Slap your way up into easy top out. Harder if you're short

V4 #41 LH variant sit

Sit start, climb up and top out.

Boulder 4m
V2 #41 LH variant

Direct up the boulder starting about a metre left of #41, sharing a start with the mosquito traverse. Topout is dangerously blank - you have been warned.

Boulder 4m
V3 Full Traverse

Start as for #41. Full traverse of boulder.

Boulder 10m
V1 #41

Sit or stand makes little difference. Directly up goes at a harder grade with some compression moves. Topout is BLANK - be careful.

Boulder 3m
V2/3 Mosquito Traverse

Traverse left from about 1 metre right of #41 (shares a start with #41 LH variant), around to the big crack and up.

Boulder 2m
V4 Musashi

Up the rock directly right of the crack. Standing start. Crux hold is a nice sloper. Very tensiony. Be careful of the blank topout. Slap up the arete if you wish but avoid getting into the crack.

FA: David Nott, 2012

Boulder 4m
V0 Cream of Some Young Climb

Straight up just left of the crack. Standing start.

Boulder 3m
V0 Easy Leap

Dyno variant of Cream. Place feet, jump.

Opposite side of the boulder to 'Unnamed problem'.

Sit start eliminate - do not go left, keep to the blunt arete.

Boulder 3m
V3 Unnamed problem

Sit start, around the back end of a boulder that looks like a split cherry, but is not the split cherry. Nicely compressive and balancy, but only a move or two in it.

Boulder 2m
V0+ Cherry Pip

Around the other side of the split cherry (#38).

Boulder 3m
V2 #39

Up the side of the split cherry.

Boulder
V2 #37

Tricksome and fiddly.

V4 Brown Trouser Time

Left of #32 and a right-side variant of Precarious, direct up the face using the ridge is a heinously crimpy climb going at around V4. Heel hook seems to be required.

Named for one of the would-be ascencionists, who on the day before had a large curry.

FA:

Boulder 4m
V0 Precarious

Left of #32, start at left side (getting on is the crux) and head on up. If you go too far right, you're headed into Brown Trouser territory!

Boulder 3m
V0 #31

There are several variations along that side of the boulder, all around V0.

Boulder 3m
V0- #30

A nice warm-up.
