Summary

THESE BOULDERS NOW OCCUR IN A NEW SUBDIVIDED BLOCK AND ARE ON PRIVATE PROPERTY Quick access bouldering right in the suburbs.

Description

THESE BOULDERS NOW OCCUR IN A NEW SUBDIVIDED BLOCK AND ARE ON PRIVATE PROPERTY - Unfortunately a new house has been built on Avoca St (19A) and new fences with "keep out - private property" signs have been erected near the boulders, and a house has been built approximately 50 m away. At this stage, access would be considered trespassing.

Not the greatest crag, or the most pristine, but worth a visit if you have spare time. And hey, it's only a few minutes walk.

Access issues

Please don't park in Avoca St as residents have complained. Park and walk the extra 30 seconds from Kent St.

Approach

Turn onto Kent St from Gordon's Hill Rd. Park and walk up Avoca St. Head into the bush to the right of 19 Avoca St, following the fence of 19. A minute in you'll see a boulder through trees to the right, walk towards it.

Ethic

There's some garbage around from the local hoodrats. Take a bag and grab some when you go; good karma.

SDS

The most interesting looking bouldering steeply overhung on one side with a hole right through it.

Closed

SDS through jugs, then awkward mantle to the right avoiding the tree

Closed

SDS project, start in back of cave, though burly underclings then up face.

Closed

SDS, fun dyno then mantle. The jug is a little delicate, deadpoint it on the left side. Edit - the starting holds and first jug are largely broken. It will still go but a lot harder now.

Closed

SDS, first move of Gordon then a couple harder moves along the seam, then up 'No Entry'

Closed

SDS, 3-4 moves up to lip avoiding easy holds on Gordon.

Closed

SDS, up side pulls then mantle

Closed

Link from second move of Trash through hard bulge into Gordon, or harder into Bong On.

About 10m right from the main boulder.

Closed

Start way back left in the cavelet, easy traverse along the face, then a tricky reverse mantle around and down the bulge and then keep traversing right until the grass pokes into your ear

Closed

Up easy face

Closed

SDS up easy face, then mantle using a little nipple

Closed

Bunched. Awkward. Contrived. Sit start, then up a couple slopers and mantle

Closed

Sit start with good underclings, through flat shelf to side pull and mantle
