We don't know where this area is located. Do you? Locate area
Western Creek doesn't offer much. The northern side has a few tiers of broken rock which aren't very inspiring. These are best left for the wallabies to shelter from the heat. The south side has a little outcrop with lovely rock but there's not a lot of it.
Access issues inherited from Arapiles
The outcrops are on either sides of Western Creek, the valley east of Pop Wall.
Walk east up the valley until below the outcrop of your choice and then go up to it. The google map marker indicates the location of Western Creek Outcrop.
Ethic inherited from Arapiles
Mount Arapiles is first and foremost a trad climbing area. The few sport climbs tend to be in the higher grades where no natural pro is available.
Bolting, particularly retro-bolting, is discouraged and should only be undertaken after extensive consultation with the local climbers, first ascensionists, etc. Inappropriately placed bolts have been chopped.
Do not chip the rock.
Look after the park.
Stick to the paths.
Don't disturb the wildlife.
Routes near peregrine falcon nesting sites are closed in the spring.
Minimise the impact of your camping (fuel stoves not fires, take your rubbish with you, etc).
