  <header id="27" name="Taroona" walk="1 min" sun="All day sun" rock="Dolerite" intro="The Taroona boulders have some nice problems on wave sculpted dolerite. Access is very easy and they have a pleasant location. An ideal after work area. At high tide a lot of the boulders are under water, so check the tide before coming." access="For Marys Grange Boulders, drive down Sandy Bay Road and continue on into Taroona. Turn left down Grange Ave and park at the bottom of the hill. Follow the short track to the beach and emerge at the first boulder. For Crayfish Pt Boulder, continue on for a km or two until Taroona Cr. Drive down this to the shore, and park at the far left of the park. Take the bitumen path along the shore past Bachelor&apos;s Grave. Just past this are some steps which lead down to a pump house on the shore. The boulder is just past this."/>
