Summary

Great place to practice trad on easier routes with plenty of protection available.

Description

Not often climbed so there is plenty of loose rock and some of it is big enough to squash an unlucky belayer. Plenty of loose rock on top too so a safety line is a must if redirecting a top rope anchor. Plenty of cam placements to make a trad anchor on top if the carrots won't do. Beware the single RB - spins freely and lifts out half way.

Access issues inherited from Wilyabrup

Access is through private property firebreak/trail. Please don't litter. There is a long drop toilet in the National Park with an amazing view. National Park so no fires no camping and no dogs. Please ensure all litter is removed and climbers are seen to be doing the right thing.

Approach

High clearance 4WD road access - After reaching the car park, continue down the gravel road which quickly turns to ruts or sand etc. Drive until you get to a National Park sign and take a left. Take your next left at an awkward and tight junction. Park at the end of this track in a mini parking area. Or walk the Cape to Cape walk track. From the parking area, DO NOT walk down using the limestone path on the side of the hill (makeshift path that is causing huge erosion). Instead, take the path that goes under the trees. Have a good look around and find a narrow gap in the scrub that goes directly west and take that along a weakness in the scrub that goes north and down. Some scrambling to get to the anchors to abseil down or some more scrambling to get to the base.
