Topo: 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 Read more

Kitty's Gorge

Serpentine National Park is located at the foot of the Darling Scarp to the south-east of Perth. The Serpentine River that runs down the slopes has carved out a valley of polished granite that ends at the well-known Serpentine Falls. The waterfall is not very impressive (especially during the dry season) and by itself does not warrant the fairly steep park entry fees (AUD12 per car), but I feel that the park and the trails Read more

Topo: Mountain Quarry

Mountain Quarry is located in Greenmount National Park and is one of the most well-developed outdoor sports climbing crags within Perth's vicinity. There are numerous bolted routes spread out over several walls. There are also a few trad routes located here. There is a combination-locked gate that leads from the carpark into the quarry. The code for the combination lock can be obtained from the Department of Read more

Stirling Ridge Walk - Day 3

Since we still had a considerable distance to cover, the group set off with a renewed sense of urgency at first light. It took just over 10 minutes to reach the second arrow and we rounded the top and descended it without any issues. I was somewhat surprised by how much easier it was compared to the third arrow. The trail was clear, the incline gradual, and there were no obstacles that needed to be overcome. The Read more

Stirling Ridge Walk - Day 2

I woke up the next morning feeling damp, cold, and irritable. To my dismay, the lingering moisture from the mist had left my hammock and sleeping bag covered in condensation, completely stripping the goose down of its insulation properties. I lay there for a while feeling miserable and thought it ironic that I had been seen as something of a paragon of resilience and had been likened to Jason Bourne just the Read more

Stirling Ridge Walk - Day 1

Despite taking almost two hours, the six-kilometre-long walk along the Boundary Fence Track from the (Phytophthora cinnamomi) dieback control barrier (just after the Gnowellen Road junction) to the entrance of the Stirling Range National Park was rather uneventful. Everyone seemed to be in an intrepid mood despite having ended up with soggy boots early on after foolishly attempting to cross a flooded section with Read more
