Description

A small bouldering area with lots of fun stuff to climb. The rock has been graffitied by someone at some time so is quite easy to recognise.

5 or so meters behind the bigfoot boulder, this boulder has potential for some hard lines.

Access issues inherited from Castle Hill

No access issues

Approach

Found on the back side of Castle Hill. The MaidenHair Track can be accessed from Skully Street. Follow this path until you cross a gully and see a large boulder split in two on your left; this boulder is called "The Peaces". Take a left and walk off-track and uphill past "The Peaces" and up into the gully. Keep moving uphill until you find the bigfoot boulder which has, among other things, a large green foot spray painted on it.

Ethic inherited from Castle Hill

Be careful of loose rock and of people walking on the trails below the climbs.

History

View historical timeline

It is thought to be first developed by "Madoc Sheehan & Sarah Sheehan" in 1997-1998.

"Good problems include a fine overhanging V2/3 traverse about 10m long on big jugs. There are also many good steep up problems from V0 to potential Vhorrible. Check out the left hand arête (V0, V1 and V2) and the gully on the right (3 V0's (1 done by Sarah Sheehan) and 2 V0's on adjoining boulder (also done by Sarah Sheehan). A fine excursion through the middle of the wall (obvious) awaits an injection of courage and strength. The landings are quite reasonable although a spotter would usually be appreciated. Shady in the afternoons." - QRank
