Description

A number of large blocks, a few lines have been redone, but there is a lot of potential if you can be bothered clearing the regrowth

Access issues inherited from Western Area

This is part of the Lower Cotter water catchment area. There are a number of rehabilitation projects underway to manage run off and erosion.

Approach

After the turn-off to Laurel Camp Road, continue straight on (there's a slightly left turn at one point) for 2.9 km until you get to the turn-off to Pierces Creek Road. You will pass a turn-off to Old Blackboy Road at the 1.1km mark. Apparently it's okay for forestry workers to be racist? Anyhow, turn onto the aforementioned Pierces Creek Road, toddle along for a short distance and you'll see the boulders on the right. A slightly longer walk-in to these boulders than some of the other areas, perhaps 250 metres.

Ethic inherited from Pierce's Creek

Pierces Creek is primarily a bouldering area however a number of naturally protected lines have been established over the years. To date aspirant ascentionists have avoided resorting to bolts on the higher problems preferring to rely on; mats, spotters, and gumption.

Up the crack and mantel.

Up the arete and mantel.

rated X - danger!

This has probably been done (??) but there's no details available on problems at the Lynch Blocs. The photo is taken from the base of the climb, looking upwards. It looks like there's enough holds to survive, if you climb something like 8 grades harder!

A long traverse potentially circumnavigating the entire boulder. Two cruxes - a clutch throw from a small incut and an off-balance reach-through from the same hold.

looks to go, but needs a few more mat and spotters, open project to anyone that wants to see this area re-developed

a little further down the hill there's a nice looking boulder with a few crack lines
