The first boulder you come as you walk up the hill. It features quite short though fun problems on pockets with generally slopey topouts.

Sit start. Use the two leftmost pockets to gain the top and topout.

Sit start on the boulder using the two pockets and slopers on top to top out.

FA: James Lacey, 8 Nov 2013

Standing start on the ground not the boulder! Start on the two pockets right in front of you and topout.

FA: James Lacey, 8 Nov 2013

Standing start. Easy problem up the right hand side of the boulder using the rightmost pocket.

FA: James Lacey, 8 Nov 2013

Sit start at 'A Wild Problem Appears!' and traverse along the pockets to finish up 'Goanna Arete'.

On the backside of the Mossrock boulder. Standing start. Up the juggy overhang. So named because of the first ascentionist's interesting top out style over the prow.

FA: Scott Lacey, 8 Nov 2013

Up the right hand arete on Mossrock using holds on both sides of the arete.

FA: Scott Lacey, 27 Nov 2013

Small reddish boulder with a couple of short fun problems.

Start at bottom of the boulder near the tree and make your way along the face using the nice juggy top.

FA: Scott Lacey, 7 Nov 2013

Sit start. Use the juggy holds to top out.

FA: Scott Lacey, 7 Nov 2013

A short overhanging face with the potential for some short, hard problems to the left of Mossrock boulder.

Sit start in the pocket at the bottom of the left arete. Move up using the arete and whatever you can!

Sit start in the rough pocket at the bottom of the face. Move up using some very average holds

Sit start in the break at the right of the boulder then make a big move to hit the arete on the right hand side of the boulder.

Next boulder along to the left.

Sit start at the right hand side of the boulder and make your way leftwards to top out over the prow. So named because one of the area's developers ended up coming off while holding onto one of the rough holds higher up and subsequently lost a fair bit of skin on his left hand.

FA: James Lacey, 27 Nov 2013

Up the right arete using the flake on the left

Standing start up the face

FA: Scott Lacey, 8 Nov 2013

Easier sit start, starting on left hand side of the boulder using the pocket to the left and the sidepull flake to the right.

FA: Scott Lacey, 8 Nov 2013

Harder sit start on the right using the small line of pockets to start.

FA: James Lacey, 4 Dec 2013

Highball project just next to the Under the Overhang problems.
