  <text class="text" id="143">There is another group of boulders on the far side of the hill with some fun moderate problems. To get there walk up the gravel fire trail from the big bend about two or three hundred metres, to just before the road reaches its highest. There should now be a relatively open area on your right. The boulders can seen up the hill to the right about 80 metres from the road (the boulders that can be seen are the ones around and above The Somme). A small cairn marks the start of a vague track that heads via the boulders to a hut. A good reference point is the highest boulder on the hill, which is the top of Shell Shock (see Shell Shock for GPS data).</text>

  <text class="text" id="186">The Gold Coast boulders are the group of boulders/outcrops visible from the Western Front. The Gold Coast faces North and is warm on a sunny day and is about 25 mins from the car to the boulders. The boulders range from about 3-7m in height with the landings being a spread of good to evil. The problems range from mini-trad routes to serious highballs and are mostly just under or over vertical.</text>
