Pockets and crimps to a couple of good jugs, then a mysterious flight to the top out...

Boulder 4m

Boulder 2m
V3 Dreamers

The steep and ever shrinking ledge. Commitment.

The crack. Runs out. Commitment.

BoulderProject 6m
Chicken Pox
BoulderProject 4m

Sit start on obvious jug, then move up and left to a slopey top out.

FA: Brett H, 23 Dec 2018

Start matched in the large hole/jug, and head straight up the crack.

Boulder 2m

FA: Mark McGivern, 22 Aug 2019

Boulder 3m
V10 Keira Sutra

Start sitting at the obvious jugs on the LHS, move across the lip utilising various underclings in the roof to summit via the Big Book LHV. Funky, interesting and unlike anything else in the area that I know of!

FA: George Broadfoot, 15 Aug 2019

Boulder 5m

Start with left hand in nice undercling in roof and right on a decent pinch. Kick right foot up into the jug and you are away, head left to good 2 finger pocket/sloper at the lip and then mantle.

Boulder
V9 The Jungle Book

Heinous line of crimps to mantle the face. Start at jug as for TBBBOE

FA: Paul Rattenbury, 10 Jun 2019

Boulder 5m
V7 Big Book Left Hand Variant

Instead of moving right hand to the lip, go with the left to a shallow pocket then RH bumps up to the good edge and mantle.

FA: Mark McGivern, 8 Aug 2019

Boulder 5m

FA: Paul Rattenbury, 21 Aug 2019

Boulder 3m
V7 Split Tip

Sit start on with RH on nice pocket, LH crimp, move straight up the undercling flake with some sick moves to a suprisingly easy top out. Be careful of the razor sharp pebbles!

FA: Mark McGivern, May 2020

Boulder 4m
Arêde

The hard Arête project to the right of Split Tip. Maybe V9-10?

BoulderProject
Wollongong Mount Keira West Face
21 Grim Death

BOULDER PROBLEM. Follows the thin crack in the first section of the West Face. Follow the crack till it runs out then layback to glory! (don't pike right).

FA: Jon Muir

Boulder 5m
V8 Dr Cameltoe

Dyno - grab jug rail at head height, smear feet and launch for hueco, top out. Maybe a bit harder for people under 6ft. Essentially climbs the wall left of GD without using the obvious holds on the routes either side.

FFA: Graeme Hill & Muir Prehn

FA: Johan Szabo, 2006

Boulder 4m
V3 Safety First

On the wall immediately to the right of The Arete By The Left Hand Side. Very thin up wall to the top.

FA: Jon Muir & Graeme Hill

Boulder
V2 Arete by left hand side

Arete between Intrepid and Golden Years. Very good boulder problem.

Boulder 5m
V2 West Face Grand Traverse

A low traverse of the west face starting in the corner and finishing on the block right of Intrepid. You can climb just above the ledge between Zatidee and Gumtree Wall but its nicer just to walk this bit. Gets a little high off the ground in places, due mostly to the massive amount of soil erosion that's taken place in the last 40 years.

FA: Graeme Hill & R Chunder, 1976

Boulder
Wollongong Mount Keira Nitro Wall
V5 Nitro Wall Leftside

Sit start on the arete. Up the lip to top out same as the next problem.

FA: Steve Bullen

Boulder 3m
V5 Untitled Route

Sit start from big hueco/mega pocket, move left and up, top out.

FA: Steve Bullen, 2000

Boulder 3m
V9 Double Blower

Goes straight up the middle of the overhanging wall and tops out. Tough mantle. Sit start, from big hueco/pocket, move up the face to the lip, mantle and top out. The key is doing a pop move from the pocket/crimp to the side pull and get a toe cam in the big hueco.Spotter advised for topping as a fall from here will see you tumble down the hill.

FA: Steve Bullen

Boulder 4m
V11 Redline

As seen on "Comin At Ya Hyper" - climbing vid of the late 90's. Only one repeat (Sharik Walker), with some of the strongest climbers/boulderers over the past 20 years being repelled. Sit start from the big hueco, move right via small pockets (chipped) up the face/arete until you gain to micro crimps, feet up and funky mantle. Fingers of steel required!

FA: Steve Bullen

Boulder 5m
V2 Sinn Fein

Starting on the deep pocket just left of the right-arete, embark on a long traverse through a variety of cool crimps, slots and jugs before topping out with big moves on jugs at the far left end of the bloc. (this can be climbed as a line in its own right, The Altar of Lamentation, v0)

Although this is an obvious problem on an obvious section of rock, no information was recorded. The FA details are lost to the stoneage climbers who never bothered to tell anyone.

FA: Unknown

Boulder 3m
V5 Brighton Hotel

The problem follows the righthand side of the arete from a sit start to a highball topout. Sit start with your feet in the large hueco at ground level, hands on the positive edge. Make your way up the righthand side of the arete to the airy scary launch for the lip.

Practising the moves on top rope is possible using the carrots handily placed right on the top.

FA: Oliver Kerr & Brett Heino, 25 Mar 2012

Boulder 5m
V3 Caffeination Fixation

Head up the major descent gully before Nitro Wall area (heading north). At the path at the top of the gully head left for about 15 metres, you should find yourself on top of a wide, orange-streaked bloc. Head around to the left of that bloc to get to the bottom of it.

On the holds right of Sinn Fein

Sit start right of the arete on jug slot and small left-hand crimp. Power through some big moves on crimps trending right before a difficult mantle on slopers and delicate top-out.

Note: the starting left hand crimp has been lost to a fat boulderer. The start must use either the higher better left hand sidepul (easier) or go without a left handhold and use the original right hand (much harder).

FA: Brett Heino, Feb 2012

Wollongong Mount Keira Pox Crag
Breach

Further still around. Nice slight ramp with delicate features. Don't use the chimney.

Wollongong Mount Keira The Lonely Boulder
V4 I dunno man...

Pretty sketchy as you will find out from what is left on the ground. Start both hands on the broken ledge, with careful balance reach up to a small right, then big left and up to the ledge. Very sketchy top out.

FA: Murray, 25 Jan 2017

Boulder 2m
V3 Machinations

Start low on the ledge, shift up the ledge. There are two ways to go from here, either straight up with your left, or sweet undercling crimp to balance then up with your right. Top out is difficult.

FA: Murray, 25 Jan 2017

Boulder 2m

Start right hand on the undercrimp. Delicate moves up to the right then grab the solid ledge and go for a powerful and fun dynamic move to the top ledge.

V0 Soft Landings

sit start, up right hand crack

FA: David Malins, 11 Jul 2014

Boulder 5m
V4 Heliopause

A good problem that forces the use of a high heel hook. Stay away from the block to the right, and the cracks to the left! Find the hidden right hand around the corner and slap up that blunt left arete.

Boulder 4m

Sit start move straight up the crack to top out. No bridging on the right hand side wall.
