Does anyone know of some good and accessible bouldering areas in the Blue Mountains?

There is some weather protected cave traverse stuff down below Medlow Bath (on the way to The
Sporting Complex)

There is some mega chipped problems on the left side of the little cliff right below Barden lookout carpark

Then there is Uber Land...

So is Uberland.

XXXX is ok, head Zig Zag but instead of following the track down the hill keep walking straight ahead and then righwards along the top of the cliff, down a little gully and along a bit more and you are there.

Mount York has some ok problems as well either down the end at the top of galactic? gully or if you head down the track past the shelter etc on the eastern side there are some hard problems in a cave on the back of the abseil block. Walk a little further Down the main track and you will get to the chilli boulder.

There is another little area down the bottom of zap crag as well.

Don't worry about a Victorian invasion of Tarana. We have an oversupply of shity granite areas down
here.

Blasphemer ;-) The granite belt areas are anything but poor as you suggest Neil. It just takes more technique than just steep cave thugging...

I know you are asking about the blue mountains, and it got onto Tarana, but if you live in Sydney, then maybe a sojourn to Black Range near Captains Flat, near Canberra would be worthwhile. Really good bouldering on compact (ie not too sharp or crumbly) granite would be worthwhile. Having never bouldered, but climbed at Tarana a fair bit, it is a beautiful place, but Black Range is better (and has probably seen more development). See the canberraclimbing website for more info.

4X is now more easily accessed from Innes Rd. Just follow the new fire trail to Engineers Cascade and wall down the gully and your at 4X.

There is a new sweet climb at Engineers Cascade as well. But cant remember was its called. Its a hard 24, you can get some sweet pics of it from 4X...

i don't knwo where that one is but there's another bouldering cave on the other side, you get to it by parking at belgravia cr as for getting to the sun bath crag, but when you head down the hill instead of going left towards sun bath you go straight and a bit right and its above one of the steep gullys there.
