Skywalker Wall





The obvious large and clean orange face on the southern side of the quarry. Be careful. Large blocks on left side of face have recently fallen off face. Skywalker is particularly unstable, with parts of it now laying on the ground. Be careful, and probably re-consider, climbing any routes to the left of Urban Ethics.

Access issues inherited from Mountain Quarry

The gravel road into the quarry runs off the carpark on Coulston Road and has a combination-locked gate (normally locked), the code to which can be obtained from the Department of Parks and Wildlife Perth Hills District office (9290 6100). The quarry is also easily accessible on foot from the car park on Coulston Road. Don't leave valuables in your car.

Grade Route

Line is between The Force and Vader and is obvious to the eye. 8 bolts and a sling for a blast hole.

FA: M. Rosser, J. Truscott & D. Zonta, 2003

This route should not be climbed due to face falling apart.

Aid climb for Premature Evacuation

WARNING: Same issues surrounding rockfall as the rest of this section of wall (I believe this has lost at least one bolt since the FA)

Logan's description:

"Got the project up the middle of Skywalker wall yesterday (7/3/2011). It was chipped and equipped by Mark Wilson and i got his permission to do it. It starts left of skywalker and goes up the thin face to where the corner block of skywalker used to be. It then goes through the overlap and finishes up premature evacuation. It is awsome technical fingery climbing and a full 30m. Gives your forearms a good pump. Needs some others to attempt it to give an idea of grade as i am not too sure. Could be 28 or 29 but i am leaning towards 29.:

FA: Logan Barber

This route, and routes to the left should not be climbed because of recent rock fall. Too bad... since it was a classic!

FA: Phil Calais

Start up Urban Ethics then branch left into Star Wars. The more common way of doing Star Wars since the rockfall

Hangers required. Start left of obvious crack (Power Play), and traversing left around arete (can go straight up to third bolt - same grade). Continue up run out section using ever smaller crimps. Excellent climb and probably the best for this grade near Perth. Shares anchors with Power Play.

July 2020: the large side pull after the runout in the middle of the route feels loose - CAREFUL where you hold on to to get that clip. The block is large and it would be a disaster if it falls. Great candidate to receive some glue soon.

FA: Ron Master, 1988

Warning Rock: Climb at your own risk

Originally and aid route called Band Aid, this overhanging finger crack will result in you laybacking like never before. Protect with nuts and small to medium cams. Shares anchor with Urban Ethics. Perhaps best natural route in Perth.

FA: Greg Butler & Ron Masters, 1988

Technical, pumpy and un-relenting.

FA: M. Rosser, 2007

Bulls - Alchemist link up.

Start in groove 3m right of Running with the Bulls, and reach jug under roof. Extended draw here makes life easier. Move right and go up using some big moves to reach anchors.

FA: K. Swain, 2008

Alchemist - Bulls Link Up.

Start up Alchemist to the jug rest, then go left to finish up Bulls

Most of this route has fallen down and the remainder is threatening to fall any day now. So beware!

FA: H. Buttler & R. Master, 1989

Start just to the left of “The Last Splash” pinnacle around 15m right of “Powerplay” at the recessed corner. Up past 4 bolts to the 5th bolt which is the 3rd bolt on “The Last Splash”. Lower off fixed carabiners. Very stylish and technical stemming. Worthwhile if you are at the quarry.

FA: N. Gledhill, 2008

Unfortunately the middle section of this route has been subject to the foibles of gravity and has long since fallen down. Not recommended !

FA: Ross Weiter & J. Gregg, 2002
