Summary

Varied and generally solid rock offering a range of classic boulder problems. **At the time of writing there are ~250 boulder problems established from VB/0-V10/11 with some hard projects still to go.

Description

Coastal bouldering spread across the Cheynes headland between Mermaid Point and Cheynes Beach itself. The rock varies from beautiful wind and ocean worn golden granite to hard grey granite.

Access issues

NO CLIMBING IS PERMITTED WEST OF THE WAYCHINICUP INLET BETWEEN THE INLET AND NORMANS BEACH (THE AREA IS WITHIN THE MT MANYPEAKS NATURE RESERVE)

Approach

From Albany go east via South Coast Hwy. Continue past Manypeaks and turn right onto Cheyne Rd. The areas can be accessed via the 4WD track that loops the headland from the end of Cheyne Rd. The adventure boulders are best accessed from the West.

Where to stay

Cheynes Beach Caravan Park is a great option to be close to the boudlders and be able to check out the beach on rest days.

Ethic

Clean tick marks and caked chalk. Clean up your rubbish. No chipping, gluing or bolting. Keep to the obvious ESTABLISHED trails and do not bash new trails.

History

History timeline chart

The info on FAs here is as accurate as I could get. If any one has any further information/corrections to what is here please feel free to let me know or update it yourself! Where FAs are assumed this is noted. Where the FA is unknown (i.e. due to obviousness, easy grade etc the problem is assumed to have most likely been done) this also noted. Names have been given for the sake of reducing confusion of having lots of numbered problems. If you have done a problem and named it differently please let me know or update it
