Description

One of the larger boulders one the edge of the sand. Capped in orange "algae" with a large left lean crack dissecting the back of the boulder. The fused pieces of rock make for amazing hand holds.

Access issues inherited from Wilson's Promontory

Keep all off track activities to a minimum.

A free permit is required to climb in this National Park, which is easy to get from the information center. If the ranger is unsure about the permit tell them it is at the far right of their counter (there are lots of casual rangers working here who are unsure of all the processes). It is a simple form to fill out solely for emergency purposes. Parks Victoria only recognizes the following locations as climbing areas at the Prom:

-Mt Bishop

-Elephant Rock

-Mt Oberon

-Little Oberon (Trackside Wall)

-Turtle Rock.

There are no access issues for bouldering at beaches

Approach

Head to South Whiskey Boulders. It is almost impossible to describe which boulder it is in this maze so match the topo. The boulder is one of the closer to the edge of the field (beach side).

Descent is down the least steep area, using the awesome rocks fused into the granite.

Ethic inherited from Whiskey Bay Boulders

It's bouldering, so clearly no bolting. Don't brush routes and keep chalk to a minimum and clean up after yourselves.
