Description

A small group of improbable granite boulders in the forest a long way from anywhere.

Approach

Follow Brookton Hway to the east until you reach Metro Rd (about 35km past the Canning Rd intersection that leads to Kalamunda). Turn south on Metro Rd, continue for approx. 16km, and just over the crest of a hill there will be a small track on the right. The track is marked by some tape around a tree, which is supposed to be red, but is now basically white with some red tinges. Travel 1km down this track and park (at 700m there is a tree with some more white/red tape around it, but this is not the spot). Walk left from the track into fairly sparse forest for about 300m and eventually you will spot some boulders. Wombat Roof is a little further downhill.

Up the slab to the small cave and the first fixed hanger, then out on the jugs to the end of the roof and over the lip. There are 2 carrots and 1 ring bolt to lower off.

Straight up the steepening slab to the right of Wombat Roof, without using either arete. Needs 1 bolt plate.
