A small group of improbable granite boulders in the forest a long way from anywhere.


Follow Brookton Hway to the east until you reach Metro Rd (about 35km past the Canning Rd intersection that leads to Kalamunda). Turn south on Metro Rd, continue for approx. 16km, and just over the crest of a hill there will be a small track on the right. The track is marked by some tape around a tree, which is supposed to be red, but is now basically white with some red tinges. Travel 1km down this track and park (at 700m there is a tree with some more white/red tape around it, but this is not the spot). Walk left from the track into fairly sparse forest for about 300m and eventually you will spot some boulders. Wombat Roof is a little further downhill.

The arete to the left of Wombat Roof.

FA: Brett Mackintosh & Jim Truscott, 2005

Up the slab to the small cave and the first fixed hanger, then out on the jugs to the end of the roof and over the lip. There are 2 carrots and 1 ring bolt to lower off.

FA: Neil Gledhill & Jon Gregg, 2005

Straight up the steepening slab to the right of Wombat Roof, without using either arete. Needs 1 bolt plate.

FA: Jim Truscott & Brett Mackintosh, 2005

Climb up the flakes to the short slab section, avoid the ledge to the left. There are 2 carrots on top for lower offs

Tricky, delicate moves on small holds. You might just be grateful for that low first clip. There are 2 carrots on top for lower offs

Tricky climbing past 3 carrot bolts

FA: Neil Gledhill & Jon Gregg, 2005

In the boulder 150m up the hill from Ephemeral. Follow the small hand crack to the top
