Description

R of the black wall is a steep broken bay about 20 metres high. A dark, shaded bay, it is wet for a good part of the year due to ground water seepage. In summer this area stays shaded which makes it a good choice on hot days.

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.

The right edge of the blank wall. Steep, overhanging, and so rewarding when you get it!

Set by Ross Weiter, 2015

4m L of Turbodiesel Excavator and 2m R of Shut 'em Down. Start is the crux, then follow the inverted staircase past 4 ringbolts to lower-offs.

FA: Ross Weiter & Peter Thomas, 2014

Climb the line 2 m L of “Crazy Horse”. Interesting moves and very 3D terrain.

FFA: R Weiter & P Thomas, 2010

Route starts 2m right of Turbodiesel Excavator and continues over two overlaps to anchors.

4m R of Crazy Horse and 2m L of Vombatia. Steep, gym-like climbing which will make you work for an on-sight. 5 ringbolts to lower-offs.

FA: Ross Weiter & Peter Thomas, 2015

Gingerly negotiate the blocky choss to second bolt and pull past big moves up steep slab to reach the roof. Final moves require a little faith.

Start below bolt (hanger required) and move right to FH (long draw to reduce drag) then delicately move back left to gain black slab. Hard moves up to groove and continue to small that takes gear.

FA: Pete Koval, 1992

Climb the aesthetic face on small holds. Starts 1m right of Month of Sundays

FA: Neil Gledhill & Kate Swain, 2016

Follow three ring bolts through a significant traverse. Gear is required to use natural protection above the third bolt (0.5 to 1" cams in the cracks work well). No lower-offs.
