Description

Highest climbs in the quarry. Beware, some of these routes are seldom climbed and full of choss.

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.

Grade Route

Start at weakness directly belloe left edge of overlap. Crux is at 3rd RB (can be aided at 23M1). Follow grooves (can use small wires), up to a flake and upper crux.

Powerful moves. Stick clip required for first FH. The hanger spins and is hard to stick clip.

Old deathroute. First pitch now hopelessly entwined in new bolted routes.

Well protected but not straightforward. Start at the bottom of Finger Licking Awful crack and follow this to top, trending L. Up face past 2 bolts then L to shallow vertical grove (large nut), then traverse L along crack with bush to Rage, then up to anchors of Rage. Trad gear and 2 GIMBs.

FA: Richard Wainwright, 2013

Pitch 1: nice moves up the first face and slab, run-out scramble followed by another nice slab. 5 CB and optional small/mid-size gear. Belay below the overhang (small/mid gear in cracks on the ledge, or use the single CB below the overhang if desperate). Pitch 2: directly up through the overhang, right across the slab and up the arete. 4 CB, 1 FH to anchor chains.

Set by Jim Truscott & Matthew Rosser, 2005

(1) 30m Slab with carrots to DBB. (2) 12m Headwall to DBB, FHs.

Start just R of Psychopath. Trend right past 5 FHs (crux), then trad climb up the corner above (gr.12). Just before top of corner traverse R onto face and up to lower-offs just below the arête of On Edge. Cams up to #0.75 Camalot, nuts all sizes. 5 FH, then trad gear.

Loose large blocks at top.

FA: Ross Weiter & Dena Rao, 2016

Start from top of P1 of Psychopath or Adventure Line.

5 BRs plus natural gear.

Start on the left of the thick red band in the rock. Nice easy climb with plenty of GIMBs to two ring bolts 3/4 the way up. Second pitch is short and runout. Could be done in one pitch.

Start at the crack on the arete right of the red band.
