Mt Frankland Climbing Trip 4th-7th March

CAWA invites all members to join us at Mount Frankland in the picturesque Karri forest north of Walpole, 400km south of Perth.

Mt Frankland is a 422 m high granite dome set in the middle of a beautiful karri forest, located in the Mt Frankland National Park. The main and most worthwhile climbing is on the main dome. Best known for its slab and face climbing, you will also find the odd crack as well. It involves multi-pitch climbing with a mix of bolted and traditional. You can just do the single pitch stuff but will run out of climbs fairly quickly and it is only possible to top rope a few climbs from the bottom. To get a better idea of the climbing, check out the West Australian Rock or the South Coast Rock guidebook and the newer climbs are detailed on the CAWA website at the link Mount Frankland New Climbs.

Camping is not allowed at Mt Frankland but for a small fee comfortable sites with a basic camp kitchen and drop toilet are not too far away. Water is generally available but this is variable and you should be totally self sufficient. BYO firewood, however check for any fire bans. The road off the main highway is dirt and can be in variable condition, though always 2WD friendly.

It’s always a great weekend away and a good chance to meet other climbers. There are lots of other outdoor activities in the area including kayaking, bushwalking and mountain biking.  We will be keeping a close eye on the weather.

Please note that CAWA trips are only open to current members. Non-members who are interested in coming can join online here:  Become a CAWA member.

Due to legal and liability issues, CAWA does not provide training on trips. All climbers must be independent participants who are completely responsible for themselves. If you are an inexperienced climber, then have a chat to some of the more experienced people you know and see if they are planning to attend.

If you have any queries or to register for the trip, please email me at nathanc@climberswa.asn.au
