A little less intimidating than the other areas, The Raft offers great climbing that is usually accessible in high seas, and is usually protected from the wind!
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!
Walk south from car park along cliff line for aprrox 300m (8-10 mins). A large orange platform with a large rock cairn marks the descent area for Vulture Street. All the climbs can also be reached by walking further south of the Vulture Street Area to a point where a rock cairn marks a steep scramble to the base of the climbs.
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.
