Climbing: Cottesloe Bouldering Wall

The Cottesloe Bouldering Wall is a retaining wall made up of quarried granite blocks joined with cement. The wall is angled a few degrees towards slab and has many small edges, one finger holds, smears, and a hand-jam or two! It is located at the corner of Pearse Street and Broome Street, Cottesloe, in the Perth Metropolitan Area. The wall is up to about six metres in height and tapers down to three metres at both ends. There is a full traverse of about 75 metres which can take up to half an hour or more depending on how many rests you take. The wall is best for rehearsing small traverses and upward problems. Be aware that falling from the top of the wall at its highest point will result in injury and attempting the full traverse will involve traversing above bins at the base of the wall, which is hazardous to your health if you fall on them.
