Summary

Some of the best granite in Perth with a good range of grades and angles. Boulders are in dense clusters with short hikes between areas.

Description

Some of the best granite in Perth with a good range of grades and angles. Most boulders have good landings and solid holds. Plenty of problems - and in particular a lot of classics in the Moderate to hard range.

Approach

4WD: https://claireandjay.smugmug.com/Climbing/Mini-Guides/Winjan/

2WD: Park here - (-31.9648113, 116.1527989). Hike about 20 minutes along wide obvious trail to trailhead marked with pink tape here - (-31.9554075, 116.1416654).

ALTERNATIVELY: Can access the track via South Ledge Road for 4WD. Theres a steep little drop-in next to a locked white gate on the left of the road, you cant miss it. Also is super easy to hike in this way if you only have a 2WD, just dont block the drop-in.

Either way, get to the trailhead mentioned above and head downhill following good pink-marked trail for 5-10 minutes until trail opens up and splits in two.

If you head to your left past the cairn you will find 50-SOG, Throw Down Boulder, Frontline and Project Boulders. If you head right you will find the Main Area and Approach Boulders.

Topos are in progress, and trails are still in the process of being marked by Mitch and Shania

Where to stay

You can camp overnight at the end of South Ledge Road. There are fire pits, drop toilets and spots for tents and swags. Just abide by all current guidelines and rules set by DPAW

Ethic

Climbing is a privilege not a right – please respect the bushland and the rock. Where possible preserve the natural flora and keep to tracks to minimize impact. Clean tick marks and caked chalk with a good scrubbing. No chipping or gluing. Take your rubbish out with you.
