There is a wealth of climbing just a short drive from the city; over 40 different areas and nearly a thousand routes. Perth also has some variety. There is the Swan River limestone, the dolerite of Churchmans Brook and of course the granite quarries, such as Mountain and Stathams, and lots of granite boulders. Did I say granite? Yes, I did. In fact, 90% of Perth climbing is on granite. Though it is also useful to point out that 90% of Perth climbing is 15 metres high or less.
