Moses Rock

ClimbOnline-guideSouth West › Moses Rock

 

The rock is similar to Willyabrup granite, but the actual walls and blocks of the crag are shorter, with most climbs less than 20 metres in height. In spite of the relatively small stature, the crag offers a variety of good safe routes for face and crack climbing on firm rock, with good friction. The more serious face climbs on the steep rock of Red Wall and Hand Up Wall have been freed with fixed protection of stainless steel bolts. The Northern end of the crag is essentially a bouldering area of broken short blocks for approximately 80 metres.

Location

These Granite seacliffs of broken boulders, blocks and short steep walls stand at the southern end of Moses Rock Beach as a coastal edge for about 400m metres. The crag’s name was derived from its proximity to Moses Rock, situated at the northern end of the broad sandy beach.

Access

The crag is best reached by driving South from Yallingup along Caves Road for 15 kilometres and turning west on Moses Rock Road until the road terminates at a car park overlooking the beach and surfing break. Walk South along the beach for Approximately 500 metres, where the granite boulders and cliffs begin.
