Bouldering in Canberra?

By Pommy bastard 1 August 2010 26

Does anyone know of any decent bouldering areas in or around Canberra? I’ve just been scanning some old snaps of me bouldering on Dartmoor, and in Cornwall (UK), and thought it may be nice to get out with a pair of boots to drag my aging carcase up some easy routes.

I’ve been to the indoor walls, and while I enjoy them greatly, it’s always a hassle with my shifts and finding a regular partner. So a nice easy low level bouldering venue would be a plus.

I’ve seen the alleged bouldering on Orroral ridge and other areas of the Brindies, but they are far too chossy and derelict since the bushfires to be safe or appealing for a day on one’s own.

Any clues guys and gals?

Heading out to check some of the Cooleman ridge problems today, if the fog clears.

Many thanks to all

I just spent too much cash and 2 weeks building the ultimate bouldering lair in my garage. ANyone know where I can get some reasonably priced holds / anyone pulling apart a woodie and want to sell some or swap for beer etc??

Also I have heard rumors of a boulder up on black mountain. Has anyone been / is it worth a go?

I’ve not been there yet but there are apparently some good granite boulders out near Captains Flat:

A slight diversion if I may? This thread, as it has the topic of rock climbing has initiated in some mystical way adverts of a related nature. One of them “meet rock climbing singles” offers to introduce me to lovely attractive blonde young ladies with an interest in climbing….

While I am not in the market for a romantic liaison right now, maybe I should click the ad and see if any of these attractive single women folk wanna go climbing?
