20 18 Baylac Direct

An excellent line, but: sandbagged, much? The first pitch is much harder than the grade suggests. Second pitch is very pleasant, and much easier.

A lovely line of mild trad. Second pitch is the best, but it's all a good time.

No gear placements, no rope drag. Superb rock and an atmospheric line. Sublime.

Exposure, much? You're going into space if you fall off the second pitch. And that roof chimney on the third! Fantastic route.

The iconic Arapiles route. An amazing line with some commitment required on the upper two pitches. Beta: take two bolt plates and some large cams.

A completely superb lineup for these two routes. Second pitch had a surprisingly bouldery start, and that overhang on the third!

Great fun. First pitch is the harder, more insecure one with some non-obvious moves. Second pitch is a classy box chimney and much more straightforward.

Soloed it. Couldn't have hurt myself if I'd tried. We don't get much off-width around Perth. This gets a star, purely for uniqueness.

You don't get many long multi-pitch routes in WA, but this is serious fun and a great day out. It packs a lot of variety into six pitches, and despite some decent runouts it's good holds all the way. Take a friend or two, a full rack of trad gear, and have an adventure. Expect 1.5h walk in, 7/8h climbing, and 1h walk down,

Sun 6th Oct 2013 - The Stirling Ranges
Bluff Knoll North Face
17 14 Hell Fire Gully

Found this an awful lot harder than the 14 grade would suggest, more like a 17/18. Mainly due to the difficulty in setting protection, much of the climb was run-out to an unsettling degree. White-knuckle trad climbing at its finest. Lots of loose rock, as you'd expect. Our progress up the face was too slow, so we had to traverse out at the top of pitch two via the Prickle Traverse (this was mercifully a safe and straightforward walk back to the tourist trail). Next time.
