    Important feedback and thanks Krish. CAWA promotes environmental awareness and sustainable practices. See http://www.climberswa.asn.au/cawa/ethics/.
    Significantly the first two items under the CAWA Code of Conduct, Environment are, E.1 Climbers are to show care for the natural environment surrounding crags and access paths and avoid wilful damage, and E.2 All rubbish is to be removed from climbing areas, regardless of who brought it.
    This includes for cleaning up after route setting to minimise impact to the environment and to remove risk of injury. This is important anywhere where bolting occurs. Please help keep our environment in good shape and take out your trash ๐Ÿ™‚

    You may need to have it cut and the ends sealed to the lengths you require.

    Hi Joseph.

    We were a bit starved of climbing competitions last year (2011). Both Rockface and The Hangout did run their own comps during the year which were well attended.

    This year is going to be a different story.

    CAWA is working to host a series of climbing competitions this year. If you attend the CAWA AGM this coming Feb 15, all will be revealed !!!!!!

    We are working up the details now and will let everyone know at The AGM…

    Follow the link on the home page to CAWA AGM which will take you to the Agenda, and you will know more..

    Tony Brebner, CAWA President

    Thanks Krish for a great mini-guide. Have some of the routes been recently re-bolted ? We were there in Nov/Dec last year and there was talk of re-bolting where it was obvious some of the original bolts had been removed ? Can you advise which routes were re-bolted ?

    Thanks.

    Have a look for the guide books here http://www.climberswa.asn.au/climb/guidebooks/. And look at the online guides for Western Australia here http://www.climberswa.asn.au/climb/online-guide/.

    Best spots for climbing in Perth are Stathams Quarry and Mountain Quarry, Churchmans Brook, Wungong Valley, Darlington Boulders and Avon Valley. Further afield down south is Willyabrup off Margaret River and then there is the West Cape Howe, Albany and Porongurup’s region. Up north is Kalbarri.

    CAWA runs a number of events and you can see what’s on on this website, how you can join up with other climbers etc.

    Western Australian sport routes use bolt plates in many cases along with ring bolts, so you may need to invest in +/- 8 bolt plates in addition to your own gear. Summer here from December onwards is hot and outdoor climbing is usually best in the early morning or somewehere in the shade late afternoon.

    Go onto the forum when you arrive to find a climbing partner or drop us a line at cawa@climberswa.asn.au
