I recently found a bouldering area at Mt Hobbs near Buckland and have just written up the first few problems.
The bouldering area is formed by the dolerite columns of Mt Hobbs falling down the southern side providing slabs, vertical and overhanging faces on the one outcrop, literally something for everyone. The boulders range in size from low balls to massive highballs that will require special trousers, with everything in between.
The potential looks enormous but it’s hard to know without trying a range of the available boulders, so get a brush and a shovel/spade to clean the toupee of ferns off the top out holds and put your name to something!
The boulders are featured on almost all faces and the dolerite texture is like coarse sandstone. The landings are generally, surprisingly good.
A typical block steep front vertical to overhanging sides and featured.
And a slab to show the diversity of problems!
