Description [Suggest Change]
A short boulder easily identified by it's steep overhanging (though low to the ground)west facing side. Sit start on the far right side and traverse the slightly overhung rock going left. Then finish by going up the steep blocky arete when you're under the highest point of the boulder. Using only heel hooks (V2) makes this route a good core workout, or use the easy foot rail below (V0)to bump the grade down a notch or two for some good steep practice.
Getting There [Suggest Change]
Walk up the main trail past the guillotine gate. Metal Mania boulder is one of the first boulders on the right side of the trail sitting nearly on top of the footpath. The problem Metal Mania is on the obviously overhanging (West) side and follows the overhang from a sit start on the far right side of this face.
