Access issues inherited from Passchendaele State Forest

HQ Plantations act as land manager for all the bouldering locations listed below. They operate as Plantation Licensee under the terms of the Forestry Act 1959, and are thus obliged to permit, but not necessarily promote, recreational access. However, climbers should understand that the primary purpose of a State Forest is timber extraction rather than recreation, and HQ Plantations have legislative authority to restrict recreational access from time to time where timber harvesting operations presents a hazard to the public. Furthermore, HQ Plantations are required to recognize all roads within the licence area as public roads. However, they have authority to temporarily restrict access for the reasons already given. Please recognize the authority of any signage that restricts access. Please obey the instructions of the Plantation Officers who patrol the area. Should you feel that any restriction is unjust or unwarranted, contact ACAQ, president@climb.org.au, and we will take up the matter for you.

Same boulder as the ANAAN - 6m to the left of it. Starts with a palm down to the far right of lowest ledge, and goes nearly straight up over a interesting bulgy face.

Stand start on two small holds, and throw up and left to positive side-pull. How it ends was anybody's guess ... until visiting Canadian Simon Parton showed everyone how it's done in 2016 in the inaugural Passchendaele V1 Bouldering Festival.

The project to the right of ANAAN.

Around the back of the boulder that A Name and A Number is on. Climb the inconspicuous slab on small edges to the large sidepull rail. Beware the solid-ish hollow-sounding flake above.

Overhanging Bulge provides a good mantling challenge with opportunities for big heels.

Found facing away from the small access track at coordinates. Cover rocks underneath with plenty of mats!

  1. Start to the left under the bulge standing on rock.

  2. Use left side and under the bulge.

  3. Ledge on top of bulge.

  4. Mantle to win.

  5. Top out is easy from there.

Descent: Exit to your right hand side, downclimb steps/ledges.

Right side of pink bits slab, staying off arete. Nice moves.

Inside the cave. Make your way up the left side of the slab Slightly harder if you avoid the giant boulder to the left.

In the cave, right side of the slab

Sit start. Sharp, right leaning layback feature in the lowest of the stacked boulders opposite the torpedo area. Great hands, delicate footholds.

Mantle problem left of Awkward Silence. Pull up on decent holds, high step and rock your way up to glory. Take care traversing off the top.

The thin, off-balance, slabby seam opposite Frosty Nips.

FA: Alex Mougenot, 2016

Tap into your inner zen on this beautiful slab, fondling the small nipple-like features on your way through to an exciting topout!
