Topo: Wilyabrup

Cape to Cape Index

Wilyabrup


Wilyabrup is by far the largest climbing crag in the Margaret River region. Most of the routes on this stretch of red granite are trad routes but there are also a fair amount of bolted routes scattered around. Although the crag lies three hours drive south from Perth, the majestic views of the coast and the fantastic roar of the crashing waves down below makes the long drive more than worthwhile. You can even head off down the Cape to Cape track from the cliffs if you want to explore the surroundings. Read more

Western Arthurs Day 10 & 11 : Lake Rosanne - Wullyawa Creek - Scott's Peak Dam

Western Arthur Range Index

Crepuscular Rays


Today was going to be a long day. We had 20 kilometres to cover, a distance that was definitely manageable, but was considered long compared to the average daily distances that we had covered over the previous week. I was already a little weary by then but the fact that the walk was mainly downhill made me feel a lot better about the task up ahead. Read more

Western Arthurs Day 9 : Promontory Lake - West Portal - Lake Rosanne

Western Arthur Range Index

A Change of Plans


I awoke with a start and realised very quickly that the drumming of the rain had stopped and that a heavy silence had blanketed us. It was still dark outside as it was well before dawn, but since the storm had passed, I decided to crawl out of my sleeping bag to stretch my legs and to get some much needed fresh air. As I emerged from my tent, I was greeted by a sky that was blazing with stars. The storm had moved away and its cloud-cover could still be seen, low on the distant horizon, intermittently lit from within by flashes of lightning. Read more

Western Arthurs Day 7 : Haven Lake - Mt. Scorpio - Promontory Lake

Western Arthur Range Index

Lakes Galore


It was dawn of the seventh day and breaking camp had become an established routine - a change clothes, coffee, a visit the privy, and some breakfast, before replenishing my water supply and packing my bag. Once I was ready to set off, I made my way along the trail and continued up the hill for approximately 100 metres Eastwards towards the viewpoint that was located on the saddle. I turned left here to continue along the main track instead of turning right, which would have taken me on the 2-3 hours return trip to the summit of Mt. Aldebaran (elevation : 1107m) and continued on past the magnificent views. Read more
