Sea Boulder

Sea Boulder

No prizes for guessing where to find the sea boulder. It offers some really good climbs in the easier grade and is a good place to warm up. The rock is very well weathered and surprisingly high which can leave you feeling a little vulnerable topping out even though the climbs are not too hard.

The Problems

1. Gardner's Girdle - 5a
An excellent, exciting traverse when the tide is in. This problem traverses the boulder anti-clockwise rounds its three main faces.
2. White Streak - 6b
An eliminate problem climbing the narrow wall between the right arete and the short crack. Climb the wall using some very sharp holds, without using the arete's to either side.


















3. Steptoe - 4c
Climb the arete without using the lump of lead.
4. Red Streak - 6a
Climb the wall just right of the arete, avoiding the lump of lead hold.
5. Chowbok - 4c
Climb the centre of the seaward face following the thin crack.
6. Erewhon - 5c
A technical start on very polished feet hold but gets easier to finish on jugs.
















7. Commercial Route - 4c
Climb the face just to the right of the arete.
8. Wednesday Wall - 4c
Climb the technical slab in the centre of the face.
9. Silver's Route - 4c
Use sides pulls to pull onto the slab.
10. Unnamed - 6b
This is an excellent sitting start to Silvers route, starting on poor slopey opposing side pulls, and a heel hook.
