Some great bouldering on immaculate rock, with a few short easy things scattered around.


Follow the cairns from the 4WD trail.

Alternatively, if you don't have 4WD. From the park entrance turn left. Follow the road until you get to the large car park on your right. (As per Hillside boulders). Hike upwards, towards the geolocation pin.

From a sit start climb directly up

FA: Wojjy, 2020

Snake your way from the centre of the face right towards the crack, then back left to top out/die above your start point.

FA: joe tynan, 2015

Climb S is for snake but bail right up the crack after the first crux.

FA: Evan.C, 2015

Head straight up the splitter crack and top out on jugs.

FFA: Kate Campbell, 2015

FA: Kade Wilson, 2015

A stunning line. Crimps and the crack lead you onto the sloping edges and a throw for the flat rail at the top.

Set: 2015

FA: Trent Searcy, 2019

Start compressing the bulge on the face, paste your feet on and make long powerful moves to the glory jugs. Scary.

FA: joe tynan, 2015

The first line up the arete, more of a distinct line than it looks. Sit start on the edge of the arete and follow the thin vertical crimp rails to the top. Also scary.

FA: Evan.C, 2015

Wonderful, balancy traverse on giant vertical edges, start as for Petrified Arete.

FA: Evan.C, 2015

Cause we clearly didn't. Tried to do Now Trending, but started as for Mermaid. Traverse low till you get to the main crack and then up.

May remove it, if turns out to be identical as Now Trending.

FA: Jakub Juchum, 28 Jun 2020

A short friendly alternative to Now Trending. Start as for Petrified Arete but stay low using underclings and sidepulls until you reach the right arete. Then head straight up to top out.

FA: Enrico carcano, 13 Jun 2020

Standalone block 5m right of petrified arete. Sit Start w. right hand on low large flat sidepull, left hand open choice. Climb up the front face (left+right aretes in).

FA: Dan Treacy, 28 Jun 2020

"All by myself, don't wana be..." etc.

FA: Evan.C, 2015

When work is to easy, it builds confidence, but not competence.

FA: Evan.C, 2015

Jam yourself into the space and wriggle upwards. I thought this would be fun, but all I feel now is shame, shame and abrasions.

FA: Evan.C, 2015

"Go stand over there and think about what you've done." Stand start.

FA: Evan.C, 2015

Your trying way to hard, don't be that kid. Sit start.

FA: Evan.C, 2015

Because its hands free! Climb the slab on good holds. The challenge is to climb hands free to the upper bulge, no star if you use hands. (Blue Tooth slab is 30m south/left of the main area.)

FA: 2018

Sit start at the smooth flat ledge and climb the slab right.

Sit start, go up past the tree and top out the easy ramp.
