Description

Roughly translated from dutch as 'Grip it like a Vulcan' you will need to apply all your strength and logic for this boulder. It stands alone, south west of the main cluster and boasts both good quality and crumbly terrible granite. Has enough to keep Human, Vulcan and all comers happy.

Access issues inherited from The Deep Hole

Is via private property, please shut the gate if you access via the north end. Owner has given permission to climb the boulders in his paddock off the the river and access the river from the watsons creek road side. Owner on the opposite side (east) of the river prefers that no one access his property. There is a fence on that side, all boulders along the river are public access and available to anyone.

Ethic inherited from The Deep Hole

A lot of people access this area to swim, please take all rubbish with you. Unfortunately has a history of people doing the wrong thing and could leed to a total lock out.

Same start as who ever you are but traverse right and up, no harder just less blackberry.

The rock is soft but climb is still palatable

Left of wild strawberries and more awkward. High feet start with reasonable but crumbly holds, will keep you on the move like a prick from a thistle.

Sit start, up using two glorious side pulls and a sharp crimpy top section. Top out to the right of upper boulder.

Same start as VengaBus but with mantle finish on upper boulder.
