Wandoo Heights





A small sport crag adjacent to the Swan Valley. Access is a half hour walk (2.5 km) along bridle paths and old 4wd tracks.


The climbs are between 6m and 11m high, grades from 6 to 21 with potential for some harder slab problems. You’ll need about 8 quick draws. There are 3 main anchor points (fixed hangers). Bring some long slings/static cord and locking carabiners if you want to build lower offs, and thankfully leave your bolt plates at home. The crag faces west, best avoided in summer and after heavy rain.


Crag is at S 31°49’06.2” E 116°04’18.2” Park in the cul-de-sac at the end of Macham Road in Millendon. Follow the track that skirts Susannah Brook till it veers left at an orange gate (approx. 1.7km / 25 min) and crosses the creek. Keep going past the gate to the next remnant fire trail that turns off right up the hill to the south (good place for a dip when creek is flowing). Walk up the hill for 10 mins. 50 metres past a dogleg section until level with a rock shelf on the right. Head west across the rock shelf following track to small escarpment.
