Description

Nice boulder with some fun sitstart problems over a decent landing.

Access issues inherited from Mornington

Best to head there at low tide.

Approach

About 100m North of the fishermans track there are two decent sized boulders with a chockstone wedged between. Xbox is the right hand boulder with the water behind you and a small corner feature on it's right hand side and a large pocket low down with a crackline running out of it. PS1 is the left hand boulder

Grade Route

Sit start with both hands in big pocket at bottom right. Lift your bum off the deck and move out left and up via jugs. Probably been done before by Fraser or Phil.

Starting with both hands on the chockstone between Xbox and PS1 and feet on Xbox crab your way around Xbox in a anticlockwise direction for an ironic 270 degrees with hands below the top until the fun ends around the back when the boulder chokes.

The landward side (back) of the Xbox starts down a big hole and has lovely big juggy holds. One climbs straight out of the hole and up slightly left of centre. This was definitely climbed on by Fraser first as his chalk was still on the lower half. I expect he topped out so can rename it if he wants to.

A hold elimination, starting as for "Minecraft" and then going directly upwards using only the crack for handholds.
