A few boulder problems around lamp post 12

Access issues inherited from Shady Side Bouldering

Climbing straight off the Tourist Track should be looked at as a privilege and not a right. Access could very easily be taken away. Please be good custodians for our sport by leaving enough space for walkers when belaying, and if bouldering - have a spotter manage your mats &/or keep them well off the main path. Preferably brush your holds of chalk once finished to maintain natural aesthetics, and for other climbers who follow.

Ethic inherited from Shady Side Bouldering

The Shady Side Bouldering is the most sensitive area in the Gorge in terms of access. This is due to the shady side walking trail being one of the most popular walking trails in the city for locals and visitors alike.

Please be very courteous to walkers. It is your responsibility to move pads out of the way of all walkers and passers by, do not ask walkers to step over your pads.

Access to bouldering directly on the shady side footpath is a privilege we as a climbing community do not want to lose! Please represent the climbing community in a positive and friendly way.

Grade Route

Climb the right leaning lip traverse. Climbs better than it looks. Start on the juggy horn feature at the bottom of the leaning arete and climb right up to the top.

Climb the arete just left of the offwidth, avoing either the offwidth or all holds and feet to the right of the crack. Sit start on a left hand sidepull and right hand flat crimp.

Jump start to the good crimp rail at around 2 and a half metres up. Move straight up without using the large ledge on your left. Eliminate but good problem!

Start as for Unnamed Arete and head up and left around the corner to the starting holds of Jumper, then finish as for Jumper.

Historical ascensionist advise taping the tip of the left index finger in order to use the invisible link which is a tiny sharp spiky edge.
