Description

A stretch of weathered limestone cliffs beside the Swan River, arguably Perth's best outdoor training site. Most opportunities for climbing involve traversing the several hundred metre-long cliff. However, there are a number of 8-10m faces above deeper water, providing an opportunity for soloing in relative safety.

Approach

Park at the Point Walter carpark and follow the paths around to the cliff (~500m). Alternatively, park on Honour Drive near the golf course tee and follow the fenced tracks down.

Grade Route

Everyone does it! Traverse along the water starting from I Can Jump Puddles, stopping at the Chasm access.

Take the leap of faith over to Splashdown and continue the Splashdown line. Watch the rock underneath depending on tidal conditions.

Traverse underneath the roof with your feet in the cave, cross the juggy lip on the right side of the roof to continue up the wall and top out.
