Actually two boulders, the Bridging Boulders have some good quality easy grade climbs, with interesting moves and generally good landings.

1 Little Slab VE
Several short, easy routes exist on the left-hand side of the west wall. Choose your own line.
2 Big Slab VE
Straight up the middle to the high point. Do not use the edge on the left. Now try without using your hands!
3 Undercling Arete VM
Pleasant climbing on the arete. Head up the little alcove, using good side-pulls, to the ledge. A big undercling on the left takes you back onto the arete and easy climbing.
4 Orange Wall V0
Up the middle of the face, using small edges to a side-pull. Do not use the left edge or better holds further right. Continue straight up past the horizontal break.
5 Slap Attack V6
Requires absolute commitment. Start with hold 1, get your feet up and dyno for 2. Has been done by short and tall people.

6 Little Crack VE
Climb the groove and crack, then continue to the top of the rock.
7 Bridging ArĂȘte VE
Climb the pillar. A sit start adds a grade or two.
8 Bridging Boulders Traverse V2
Traverse the wall. Without bridging. Normally done right to left, but can be done in the opposite direction.
9 A Bridge Too Far V4
Traverse about 50cm below the major line of positive holds.

10 Unnamed V1
Up the middle of the steep face. Once at a vague ledge a committing move leads to a good incut. Do not use the right arete. The proximity of the other wall makes the landing quite bad.
11 Unnamed VE
Climb the short, smooth wall at the left end. Pleasant climbing but the landing is broken: take care.
12 Unnamed VE
Climb the left side of the main wall.
13 Unnamed VM
Climb the right side of the wall.
14 Bridging Route VE
Quite fun. Bridge up between the two rocks. Generally easier to start on the northern end of the corridor (where the rocks are a bit closer together) and move up and seaward. When you can't bridge any further, push yourself on to the left wall and finish up route 13.
