Description

A nicely featured boulder, a short walk left across the hill from the Teenage Angst area.

Access issues inherited from Western Area

This is part of the Lower Cotter water catchment area. There are a number of rehabilitation projects underway to manage run off and erosion.

Approach

About 50m along the small track that starts directly behind the start to Gastagon etc, passing a couple of other boulders on the way.

Ethic inherited from Pierce's Creek

Pierces Creek is primarily a bouldering area however a number of naturally protected lines have been established over the years. No bolting of routes is accepted. Instead, ascentionists use natural protection on the higher problems, or where that is not available, rely on mats, spotters, and gumption.

Kid Kenobi is located about 20m downhill from the Castro boulder near the creek.

Sit start from slot then climb up and top out. NOTE: this boulder was badly fire/water damaged and not all the remaining rock is totally secure. Take care pulling on the large flake.
