Superb faces / roofs / cracks along stunning coastline with a relaxed beachy atmosphere. Most of the routes are mid grade (17-21, VS-E2), with a bolt here and there (take hangers) to make sure nothing feels too bold. Stainless Steel (21, E2) has to be one of the best face climbs ever, and the roof of KGB (26, E6) next to the great corner-climb of Mobjob (20, E1) just confirms the central section of this crag (Steel Wall) as being amongst the best in Australia.
From Margret River, head north along Bussell Hwy, turning right into Carter's Rd, and continuing until it ends into Cave Rd. Follow this for ~14km, when Willyabrup Rd appears on the left just before Gralyn Winery appears on the right. 2km along the sandy road is a small parking area. Use the styles on the left and follow the path down to the beach, heading around to the left (facing the sea) to descend to the crag bottom.
|Steel Wall (Stainless Steel to K.G.B.) has to be some of the best face / small roof climbing in the world. Simply amazing!|
