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. 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

Start left of obvious crack (Power Play), by using top of pointed block and traversing left around arete (can go straight up to third bolt - same grade). Continue up run out section left of arete using ever smaller crimps. Red point crux is mantelling the shelf at top before anchors. Small cams (0.75 - 2 Camelots) could be used to protect top moves. Excellent climb and probably the best for this grade near Perth. Uses same anchors as Power Play. Anchors can be reached from top, but probably safer to abseil or be belayed from large boulders at top.

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.
