Located approximately 30km from Perth, Darlington Boulders nestle amongst tall trees in the mouth of a side valley of the Helena River system. Perched high on the hillside overlooking the valley, one gets some splendid views up the valley and across the back of the Kalamunda National Park.
Varied climbing in both style and grade make it ideal, and as most routes are 8 - 15m high, there are no mind-bending exposure problems you may encounter elsewhere. The area now boasts over 60 routes - cracks, faces, and slabs from grades 12 to 25. Fine traditional lines and some excellent modern routes provide something for most tastes.
The Darlington Boulders area is located approximately 30km east of Perth in a side valley of the Helena River. Follow your street directory to the junction of Mills Rd and Nelson Rd in Darlington. From here follow Nelson Rd for 500m south (No Through Road) towards Darlington Winery. Park in the large bay on R, just before the winery entry gate, taking care not to block the firebreak access.
Walk 30m toward the winery and when the road turns L to the entrance, continue straight ahead and around a pole gate. The total walk in to the main area takes 25 minutes.
