Parking as for Niblo Boulders in Niblo or Darrell Pl, wander left and down the hill from the big water tank. Stars a V8 traverse on crimps/slopers.

Access issues inherited from Cooleman Ridge Bouldering

Please be sensible accessing the Horse Paddock boulders if walking in from the Kambah side and go around the horses rather than straight through the pen. Access from this side is at the end of Hake Street - drive past the pony club and park near the 'Arawang' sign.

Ethic inherited from Cooleman Ridge Bouldering

While some of the harder climbs on the ridge were created by chipping, where previously no climb was possible, please leave your chisels at home. There are not so many climbs at the higher grades that they should be brought down to lower levels!

A nice warm-up.

There are several variations along that side of the boulder, all around V0.

Left of #32, start at left side (getting on is the crux) and head on up. If you go too far right, you're headed into Brown Trouser territory!

Left of #32 and a right-side variant of Precarious, direct up the face using the ridge is a heinously crimpy climb going at around V4. Heel hook seems to be required.

Named for one of the would-be ascencionists, who on the day before had a large curry.


Traverse either way - crux is middle section.

Sit start from low rail, climb straight up and top out.

Start as for Fairly Standard Lowball and after the crux moves of this climb traverse right as for Cassius. Consistently hard moves until you hit the glory jug.

Tricksome and fiddly.
