Access notes
Colac Bay cliffs are west of Riverton, about halfway to Colac Bay village.

The rock is slightly brittle granite, but with plenty of placements. There is massive scope for new routes. The routes in 'Rock Deluxe' hadn't been led at time of publication and they suggest bolting some of the cliff for some reason. Get there and claim some FAs before that happens.

The cliffs are covered in the 'Rock Deluxe' guidebook by Kate Sinclair and Ivan Vostinar.
