Possible route with a sloper top out.


Waterworld consists of the line of boulders along the shore that are partially submerged in the lake most of the year. Two of the largest pieces of rock on the peninsula are in this area. When the lake is at normal levels none of this rock is climbable. Some winters or during drought conditions the lake will drop low enough so that the entirety of these rocks are exposed and you can look for places to climb.

This winter (2011) the lake is down and we had a go at finding a few new routes. We saw at least three and climbed two easy ones. There may be a few more if you are creative (and you have to be creative at Juliette). There are some hazards associated with climbing these boulders. The lake bottom under the boulders are littered with large sharp rocks and stumps. The top outs are mostly slopers as well so make sure you protect with pads well. The routes we have tried so far are not really anything spectacular but worth a go if you are there. Two of the boulders in the water are two of the largest pieces of rock there but they are surprisingly smooth with few holds.

Getting There 

Same approach as always but just make your way down from the top of the shoreline boulders to the lake bottom. If the lake is low enough you will be able to walk under the largest overhang without getting wet and go from one end of the Waterworld boulders to the next.
