Eaglestone Trip – September long weekend 2019

Join us for the September long weekend! Eaglestone Rock offers moderate sport, mixed, and trad routes on nicely-textured granite, and is situated on an expansive salt lake (get up early for a sunrise; you won’t regret it!)

A 3.5 hour drive from Perth will take you to bulletproof  granite with good face climbing and edges. With over 30 bolted, trad and mixed lines there is truly something for everyone; in particular, there are some excellent moderate routes. Abseil stations are positioned on top of the major boulders. Classics include **Wishbone (17), **Capachow (19), * Pink Rings (18) ** and Ithica (22). So be sure to check out your Perth Rock Climbing Guide or The Crag for route and access information.

Camping at Eaglestone is super easy, with the campground only a stone’s throw away from the crag. There is the luxury of a drop toilet, so no need to pack a shovel. However, there are no other facilities or water so you will need to be completely self-sufficient. A guide of what to bring:

  • Cooking & camping gear, including plenty of water
  •  Toilet paper
  • Warm clothing for night

You don’t need a 4WD but there is a short section of dirt road, followed by a section of good sand track easily accessible by 2WD.

Please make sure you’ve read through our information on CAWA trips.

To register, please fill in the form no later then on Wed 25th and contact Dave – he’s also our contact point for this event!
