The cliff line opposite the rocky island. The Swallow is an obvious open book corner running down to the base of the cliff. There are a number of easier routes found here.

Access issues inherited from West Cape Howe

The 4WD track can vary greatly in condition. A shovel may be needed to fill in some of those holes!


Located on the headland, west from the car park.

Descent Notes

All climbs are reached by rapping from either side of the corner system.

Ethic inherited from West Cape Howe

There is no established ethic, but the area was once within the 'Adventure Zone' which prohibited bolting. The usual WA ethics towards bolting apply, and all bolts should be placed with careful consideration, and definitely not used to replace natural pro.
