Summary

A well-developed outdoor climbing site with a large number of sport climbs, close to Perth with good parking.

Description

Statham's Quarry is a well-developed outdoor climbing location within Gooseberry Hill National Park with a large number of bolted sport routes. A lot of effort has been spent removing loose and dangerous rock, and routes for all experience levels are available. As well as climbing, the Quarry is used for other activities such as abseiling and hiking. A drop toilet is available at the site.

Access issues

The gravel road into the quarry runs off Ridge Hill 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 after parking on the closest corner when driving down the Zig Zag road. Don't leave valuables in the car.

Approach

If the gate code is known, turn off Ridge Hill Road into the gravel road and drive straight into the quarry. Note that the gravel road can become difficult/inaccessible to 2WD vehicles when wet. Alternatively, park at the carpark halfway down Zig Zag Scenic Drive (this is one-way, entered via Lascelles Road at the top of the hill) and then walk in via the track. This track is about 500m, and passes through an unlocked, labelled gate. Head toward the large boulder at the top of the quarry, then follow the path down to the left and around into the quarry floor.
