    I have been climbing some great crack climbs around Perth.

    Can anyone recommend any awesome crack climbs in WA? (Any grade and height)

    Crack climbs? Perth? You have a list?
    Not famous for them. There’s one at Boomer crag. Easy ones Usurper Mt Quarry, maybe Tap Tap Tremble, Churchmans. Some bizarre ones in the bush around wombat rocks. the top of Crisis Master in Boya. Slot Machine , Darlington. Power Play, kind of.
    None of them really crack climbs, except maybe Slot Machine.

    There are some nice ones at Mt Randall. You’ve possibly already come across them.
    In the Three Sisters area there are 4; grades 14, 17, 19 and a super skinny crack 21. All short, maybe 6 metres? Definitely need to tape up for the 17 and 19.
    In the Freefall area, an excellent 18 called Freefall. There are a number of funky cracks lurking in the boulders scattered in this area.
    Also a fun grade 14 at Kalamunda Boulders. Very clean and doesn’t need taping, takes mid to larger cams. Not the cruisey piece expected at this grade.

    Sundance crack is the only decent one I can think of around Perth.

    Kalbarri has Kalbarri Gold (27)
    WCH has Tombstone (20), The Climb (18), Dancing the Deep Blue has a nice crack part (26). Take the Plunge has a good crack at the top (19)
    Peak Head has Baylec Direct (18), Storm in a Teacup has some good crack sections (21)
    Mt Franklin has Silence of the Cams (19)

    WA is no Frog Buttress though…. 🙁

    Not sure if you want climbs with lots of crack climbing (e.g jamming) or climbs that climb up cracks (e.g power play).

    Perth:
    Sundance Crack
    Samaritan Crack
    Power Play
    Boomer Crack
    Turbo Crack
    Fryaway

    WA Greater Area:
    Baylac
    Fortress Crack
    Kalbarri gold
    Hey Joe
    Hear the French Nukes Blow (?) louisse shepard route at the gap
    WCH has a few

    Fortress is the only one i would consider gloves being warranted on…. it’s steep !
