The days are getting warmer so it’s time to head to the coast for some sea cliff climbing. CAWA has a trip planned to Wilyabrup on the last weekend in November. Located 26km NW of Margaret River, it’s not too far for a weekend trip from Perth.
Wilyabrup is one of the biggest and best known crags in the region, stretching around 400m along a small terrace above the wave line overlooking the Indian Ocean. With rock pools and small beaches close by, it’s a beautiful place to climb.
The climbing style is quite varied with lots of face climbs, small roofs and even a few cracks. The climbs are mostly trad or mixed lines requiring a full rack of wires and camming devices, but there is also some sport routs as well. Top ropes can be easily set up in places. Check out the West Australian Rock guide book for more info.
We will be staying at a campground not far from Wilyabrup. If you intend to come on the trip send me an email and I’ll send you a registration form, firstname.lastname@example.org. Any questions give me a call or email. Most people will head down on Friday night, let me know if you need a ride or have spare seats in your car. It’s a good way to meet new people.
Please note that CAWA trips are a benefit for members. Non-members who are interested in coming can join online. CAWA is not able to provide training due to liability issues and so all climbers on the trip must be independent participants who are completely responsible for themselves. Participants under the age of 18 must have a parent, guardian or other responsible person to accompany them.
Look forward to seeing you down there.
