Summary

Just a few cool aesthetic boulders in a lovely forest. Easy access on the Bouddi Spur walking track towards Maitland Bay.

Description

10mins easy walk down the Bouddi Spur walking track will get you to a small cluster of sandstone boulders on the walking track. The area features one main overhanging wall with potential for some great lines topping out (V5 -V8??), as well as a couple of large detached boulders with lines on them too. One or two lines have had an ascent but the best are still sitting dormant. Please DO NOT establish any new bouldering here off the walking trail. The main boulders all require pads placed on the walking track so no extra vegetation has been damaged for bouldering, let's keep it this way.

Access issues inherited from Bouddi National Park

Climbing is permitted under the 2020 plan of management. It is imperative climbers adhere to a code of conduct. Groups of more than eight people need a permit from the NPWS. https://acansw.files.wordpress.com/2020/09/code-of-conduct-2019.pdf

Approach

Park at the Mt Bouddi carpark and walk 10mins down the Bouddi Spur walking track to the boulders which are on the trail. Follow the stone steps down past the picnic shelter, walk down hill for a few minutes before the track crosses a saddle. After this the track continues up past some chossy outcrops before dropping down immediately to the boulders. You'll know you're there when you're standing on the track under a bulging overhang with some stone steps below.

Ethic

Please do not establish any bouldering off the walking track itself so as to minimise impact on vegetation. This is a quiet walking track but there will still be occasional people wandering by. With this in mind: please give way to others and allow passage by moving your pads for people; avoid bringing your boombox and bad taste in music; and leave no trace of climbing by brushing off your chalky mess. Also, not good here in the wet. Brittle rock and not much shelter.

History

History timeline chart

There has likely been ascents of these problems in the past but I can't find a history of it. They're just super obvious lines on a walking track so I figure someone has had a crack before.
