Description

The first place you should check out if you've just arrived to climb in castle hill. The thousands of boulder problems here are bound to keep you busy for years to come. It is often hard to describe the sheer number of classic problems that stare you in the face as you walk into this area.
The rock is (as in all of Castle Hill Basin) limestone. In quantum field you will find lots of slopers. Lots and lots and lots of slopers. Sticky rubber and lots of climbing tape is required, as you will find your fingers quite worn out by the end of the day (not to mention a BIG smile on your face).

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 from the Castle Hill car park, up the trail past Spittle hill, over the fence and walk behind the HUGE boulders ahead of you.

funny you would mention only the slopers...i would say that quantum field/castle hill is noted mostly for rounded mantle finishes to EVERYTHING. you get strong real fast and you learn how not to look like a struggling beached whale as well.

you can spot the newbies right away, using everything including their faces to stay on. good times had by all. May 25, 2009
