BETA PHOTO: Spittle Hill from the trail


The hill to the left as you walk up the trail from the carpark. The first large (house-sized) boulder you see next to the trail is the aptly named "submarine boulder" and has a number of classic problems. The rest of the area has thousands of problems spanning all the way up the hill.

Getting all 2000+ boulder problems onto this site will be a bit of a chore. There is a guide book that you can get once you get there though, which is much more comprehensive.

Getting There 

Walk up the trail from the Castle Hill Car park, you can't miss all the boulders on the left. Don't cross the fence or you will be in Quantum Field
