Guide for Boot Up Area

Climb INDEX * Boulder A * Boulder B * Boulder C

Drive back along the farmroad and turn right heading around the left side of the mountain. After 1.5km you will see several Eucalyptus trees on your left near a gate in the fence. Walk about 50m to the boulders on your right. There are some ruins of a kraal at the base of these boulders.
Boulder A
This boulder is closest to the road with a small overhanging face on the road side.
. ................................ ..............
1. OPEN PROJECT
 
2. FLUFFY BUNNY SLIPPERS V5/6C+ *
Stand start on a good layback for your right and a crimp for your left. Climbb leftward and up the face. A good spot and big mats are recommended.
First Ascent: Matthew Murison
 
3. EXECUTIONER OPEN PROJECT ****
Sit start in the middle of a steepish face which faces the road in a finger slot, up right to pocket and then top out. This problem was named as such because the finger slot was chipped and there are plans afoot to excecute the chipper! The chipped hold subsequently broke and now the harder problem needs a new first ascent. Previously it went at about V8/V9, now it may be V9/10?
First Ascent: Chipper on pre-proken state. Then Paul Brouard, then the grip broke...
 
4. STOMP V4/6B+ **
Stand start from pockets up to an edge and top out.
First Ascent: Matthew Murison
