Description

From the Power Plant, walk North East uphill for 100m (although it will seem like more) until you reach a huge expanse of glorious boulders. Try not to weep with joy. Go Play.

Some notable boulders:

  1. Wonder Boulder. A superb boulder with two climbable sides (on the downhill side) and an easy access from the uphill side. Located in the lower part of "The Mecca" sector.

  2. Romantic Boulder. Located just above "Wonder Boulder".

Grade Route

Under the overhanging 45° arête, sit start with RH large pinch and LH small crimp (on face). Slap up to a sloper and climb the arête to top out on good holds.

Sit start in the triangular cave left of T.L.O.R. on a sidepull. Climb left past the hole, then head up and left following the crack to top out.

FFA: Robert Brooks, Oct 2015

Sit start at the bottom of the leaning crack left of Mechasheva. Follow the crack trending left to gain a good flake and top out.

FFA: Robert Brooks, Oct 2015

Crouch start on slopers, head up through slopers and edges via some throws and heel-hooks. Originally topped out trending right but can possibly finish direct or trending left. Project: Lower start on hanging bulge on the right should go, several grades harder.

A tremendous highball on the southwest side of the boulder. Start on the obvious incuts at the centre-right of the overhang face; bust a move to the lip, gain the mantle, and then enjoy the heady slab climbing. Top out with relief.

Start as for "High On His Own Supply", but bust straight up into the mantle on the right-hand side of the lip. There follows some techy slab climbing quite high off the deck. Again, top out with relief.

Stand start with two hands on the big sloper and work directly upwards.

FA: Andy McKilliam, 28 Aug 2016

Located on the northwest side of the boulder. Sit-start with hands on the flat-edge rail directly below the two obvious sidepulls. Balance up through these holds to top out directly above. Interesting technical climbing.

FA: Ed Heddle, 28 Aug 2016

Sit start with the left hand in the comfy pocket and the right hand balancing against the insubstantial sloper. Enjoy the delicate movement upwards.
