Description

The striking rock at Moses Rock makes for some fantastic bouldering by the sea. The Castles in the Sand Bloc area is home to a host of boulders with the characteristic streaked appearance of Moses Rock. The Castles bloc is located at the base of the cliffs in a small area just in from the sea.

Approach

On Moses Rock Rd take a left and park at the end of the road (it will become unsealed for a short section then is sealed again in the parking area) - this is manageable for all vehicles. Walk along the beach near the vegetation until you reach a path leading left up the hill (before the rocky outcrops start). Follow this up and right. You will reach an intersection with a 4WD track, take a right here and descend to the base of the sea cliffs. The boulders are fairly obvious from here.

Start on chalked up holds under the boulder and bust out to the obvious flake. Traverse rightward to a dicey finish as the landing runs out. Hard, proud line.

Take a left exit from the flake. Could go - not sure if it has been done yet, but there are enough holds to make it seem possible...

Well featured faces opposite the humphead wrasse bloc.

traverse the obvious crack out then up. Cool. Mind your dab on the big rock behind you in the middle.

Sit start. Up using the slopey holds. Rad.
