Summary

A compact crag with numerous low grade, and a few moderate, bolted climbs, perfect for newcomers to outdoor sport climbing.

Description

A low, mostly slabby granite crag.

Access issues inherited from Fern Rd

There are issues concerning the approach - the description in local guidebooks will take you across privately owned land that is indistinguishable from the surrounding national park, and the landowner is not happy about it. However, the approach can be made without encroaching on the private land. See the http://www.climberswa.asn.au entry for Fern Road for more information.

Approach

From Kalamunda, drive 5.6km east along Mundaring Weir Rd, then turn left into Fern Rd. Continue to the end of the bitumen and about 50m further to the signs indicating the Bibbulmun track; park here without obstructing any of the tracks. Walk downhill along fence past the farmhouses and continue along this bearing for another 300m after the fence turned right. (Note: at the end of fence, do NOT descend into the creek to your right, as this is still on private property, although unfenced. This descent is roped off and you should see a sign on a tree marked 'Private Property'.) Instead, keep going straight and you'll see a tree with a yellow plastic bucket nailed halfway up the trunk. Crag is visible from here. Turn right(east) at the yellow bucket. After 30m you'll come to the creek (same creek which you did not descend) with the crag visible on the far side. The whole walk-in is about 1km or 15 minutes.

Groovy Moves 5m Gr14 Pete Thomas solo (15 June 2014) Well it has almost as much climbing as some of the other climbs here! Several metres R of Get A Grip, it is an obvious small groove that offers a short cut saving 10m of walking when you are about to walk up around the R end of the crag to access the top. I don’t think there’s any gear, but a spotter should suffice (thanks Richard). Pleasant bridging to a big jug and on to the top.

There is either a 2 carrot bolt anchor just over the lip, or a large tree set back around 8m from the last bolt for lowering
