    Hi there,

    Me and some friends are heading down to Wilyabrup. I have the Margaret River rock guide book and aim to concentrate on working the beginners wall.

    What is the best way to walk to the bottom of the cliff face. I know you can abseil, but I’d rather walk. The guide book says you can head south and just walk around. But are there any more specific instructions?

    Also, do I need to take bolt plates or are the routes all ringed?

    Thanks
    T

    Hey T
    You can walk there, from Willyabrup sea cliff go back up the wide track and turn left along the cape to cape walk trail (narrow) keep walking until you go down some stairs made of stainless steel and wood then follow the cliff around on the left heading back towards Willyabrup sea cliffs keep walking along the bottom until you come across the beginners wall it’s about 5-8 metres high you can find an easy scramble to the top to set up a top rope there are ring bolts at the top.

    Thanks Rob,

    Do you happen to know where i can get a copy physical or electronic of Margaret River Rock? I went to the state library but there version seems to be lost.

    Hi rob,
    just got back from wilyaburp and found the beginners wall, but couldnt find how to get to the bottom of the climbs. The guide book says there is a scramble to the right of terrace, but all we found were free climb sections. Also couldnt find the ring bolts at the top of beginners wall. Any tips for next time.

    Without wanting to sound conceited, the main section of Wilyabrup is arguably the most well tracked, and in terms of cliff top ring bolts, ridiculously over bolted natural crag in the state.

    If you cannot find your way to the base of the cliff on what is the pedestrian equivalent of a freeway, or fail to the notice the proliferation of giant stainless ring bolts bristling from every half sound piece of cliff top, I’d suggest you are either being very unobservant and / or excessively cautious?

    More likely lost.
    right is looking up at the cliffs which is south.

    Bret, this was my first time there and whilst i found the main crags fine (1 through to 5) the terrace and beginners wall are harder to identify. We found the crags, and followed the guidebook but think we went to far right for the upward scramble because we ended up at the top of the beginners wall, not the bottom.

    It was wet, and we did find areas that could be climbed up, but no scramble.

    Hey Tim, next time you head down I’ll show you, I don’t think it’s so easy to find and I think Brett.D is talking about a different section, you can contact me through my facebook page Margaret River Climbing Buddies.

    Don’t feel too bad Tim, beginners wall is indeed a little tricky to get to. While i haven’t spent much time on it, there are definatly some good climbs in the northern buttress area. The main crag (where Brett would be thinking of) also has many quality climbs of “beginner” grade. Speak to Rob, he’ll get you sorted no worries 🙂
