Climbing: Wallcliffe

Wallcliffe has had its fair share of problems related to access. Ask the shire council whether or not climbing is permitted. If they say no - kick up a fuss, otherwise - enjoy the climbing. The cliff is limestone, overhanging, bolted, has several bees' hives, and the rock is very abrasive. Bouldering at the base of the cliff is fun and sheltered should the weather play up. Climbs are up to about 30 metres high, some have lower-off bolts, others have top-belays. Most of the climbs are graded in the 20's. Wallcliffe is located on the banks of Margaret River, in the state's south-west. The difficult way to get to the cliff is by parking at the river-mouth, and walking up the river to the cliff. You can't miss it. It's on the south side of the river.
