A stand-alone boulder on the track beneath the Kennedy Wall and Beyond. Safe landings, solid rock and potential for harder variants and eliminates await.

Access issues inherited from New South Wales and ACT

If you have benefited from climbing infrastructure in NSW, please consider making a donation towards maintenance costs. The Sydney Rockclimbing Club Rebolting Fund finances the replacement of old bolts on existing climbs and the maintenance of other hardware such as fixed ropes and anchors. The SRC purchases hardware, such as bolts and glue, and distributes them to volunteer rebolters across the state of New South Wales. For more information, including donation details, visit https://sydneyrockies.org.au/rebolting/

Approach

If accessing from Kennedy Wall and Beyond, go down to the main track from Lime Spider and the boulder should be on your left. If walking from main track it should appear on the right about 500m past The Courtyard.

Bouldering on the main face has probably been done before but there’s no mention in the guide about it.
