Description

The obvious large and clean orange face on the southern side of the quarry. Be careful. Large blocks on left side of face have recently fallen off face. Skywalker is particularly unstable, with parts of it now laying on the ground. Be careful, and probably re-consider, climbing any routes to the left of Urban Ethics.

Access issues inherited from Mountain Quarry

The gravel road into the quarry runs off the carpark on Coulston Road and has a combination-locked gate (normally locked), the code to which can be obtained from the Department of Parks and Wildlife Perth Hills District office (9290 6100). The quarry is also easily accessible on foot from the car park on Coulston Road. Don't leave valuables in your car.

22 *** Urban Ethics Sport 25m, 7

Hangers required. Start left of obvious crack (Power Play), and traversing left around arete (can go straight up to third bolt - same grade). Continue up run out section using ever smaller crimps. Excellent climb and probably the best for this grade near Perth. Shares anchors with Power Play.

FA: Ron Master, 1988

20 *** Power Play Trad 25m

Originally and aid route called Band Aid, this overhanging finger crack will result in you laybacking like never before. Protect with nuts and small to medium cams. Shares anchor with Urban Ethics. Perhaps best natural route in Perth.

FA: Greg Butler & Ron Masters, 1988

24 *** Running With the Bulls Sport 30m, 8

Technical, pumpy and un-relenting.

FA: M. Rosser

13
25 ** The Alchemist Sport 25m

Start in groove 3m right of Running with the Bulls, and reach jug under roof. Extended draw here makes life easier. Move right and go up using some big moves to reach anchors.

FA: K. Swain, 2008

21 Chrysalis Trad 22m

Most of this route has fallen down and the remainder is threatening to fall any day now. So beware!

FA: H. Buttler & R. Master, 1989

21 ** Conflation Sport 12m, 5

Start just to the left of “The Last Splash” pinnacle around 15m right of “Powerplay” at the recessed corner. Up past 4 bolts to the 5th bolt which is the 3rd bolt on “The Last Splash”. Lower off fixed carabiners. Very stylish and technical stemming. Worthwhile if you are at the quarry.

20 The Last Splash Sport 20m

Unfortunately the middle section of this route has been subject to the foibles of gravity and has long since fallen down. Not recommended !
