    there weren’t any guides. There was a map and there were directions to some areas and links to guides which can all still be found elsewhere. I saved the videos though.

    Can you point me in the right direction for the maps/vids? Is shambala and that all in the crankdown area?

    I’m currently trying to get all bouldering locations listed with coordinates here:

    Most of the miniguides are now posted here:

    The only exception is Millers which the previous committee did not want to post due to the access instructions. Some suggested edits were given to the author but an updated version has not yet been received.

    Hey Tyrone,

    the vids aren’t online anymore (I have them all saved somewhere on a disc but I think it’s in Oz– I’m in Asia for a while)…

    Shambala is at Millars… The Millars Guide is here:

    all 17 pages of it…

    what other areas do you want directions too? A lot of them can be found in some of these threads…

    there are still quite a few areas which have no guide, just coordinates… would be nice if you could embed pictures into these posts and just say “hey, here is a new V4 I did at such and such coordinates…” ah well.

    oh yeah, and there was no “crankdown area”. it was just the name of a site that Andy made that had a bunch of videos of (mostly) him bouldering in various areas around (mostly) Perth… good stuff. fun to see a new one yesterday!

    Cheers guys!

    Yea i saw that vid, got me excited! Thats why i asked. I went to the oodjay boulders last weekend to have a bit of a squizzz, wasn’t that good.. The rock out there is waaay to coarse grained and friable. I think Millars will be next on the list of places to try out. I still haven’t been to Pipelines…

    I’ve heard Toodyay is a bit rough but I also heard there was some decent stuff up there… we always pass it on the way to Walyunga and say we’ll stop there on the way back if there is time… but we don’t. For those who live in the northern suburbs at least it isn’t that far…

    Millars has lots of stuff but bit of a trek and spread out…

    Pipelines has even more stuff with another trek but not as spread out…

    @ Mark Weatherill– I looked at the updated map with areas on it– looks good. that’s sort of what crankdown had… what about putting “(bouldering)” in brackets behind the bouldering areas– or having them on a separate map? or maybe there’s no need. just an idea.

    Mike, I considered using a different colour pin for bouldering but the tricky part is handling areas like Kalamunda and Hardey Rd which have both. Maybe I just need some tick boxes which allow you to filter bouldering and climbing.

    Contained within these pages is all you will need to go out there and discover for yourself. Show a bit of adventurous spirit, do a bit of research and go forth.

    Instead of taking the 2 minutes it takes to write the post asking for info, spend that time looking around this site and sites it links to.

    Most people cant be bothered writing a topo for a crag that has 15 problems, they are out there climbing them.

    Actually Mike, there isn’t any info on Millars (you can read that in the above thread) so Tyrone wouldn’t have been able to find that by spending time looking around this site and the sites it links to.

    I don’t mind sharing where good areas are, in fact I think it helps the growth of the sport. I’m not sure why it bothers you. All the people who’ve written on this post have climbed outside and put up new stuff and shared it with other people.

    Didn’t even bother to check out this thread, shame it’s too late now to justify my question. Thanks Mike (R) for standing up for me. It’s too easy for people to sit at their computers and post their irrelevant opinions. This forum is designed to help the climbing community to communicate and share information easily. So I apologise for using it for its intended purposes. Maybe next time I should share a negative and entirely unhelpful point of view to someone else who just wants to have fun, climb and improve.
