I admit that I’m a little behind.
Those that use Instagram will have noticed that quite a few adventures have been had since I last updated this site. I will get onto them in the weeks to come.
For the last three or so years we’ve found that riding bicycles with Bryn has been the easiest way to get out there. Over more recent times, with some selection of venue, we’ve made a return to rockclimbing. While this is how we first met and so could be argued to have historical precedent over pedalled adventures, the change likely brings a better balance between activities rather than a departure.
Eaglestone Rock is a collection of large granite boulders about 300km east of Perth in Western Australia. It’s on the far edge of the wheatbelt and works really quite nicely for a 2-3 day weekend. Most of the climbing is bolted with a smattering of trad-protected lines. It’s got plenty for those climbing in the grade 17-25 range (HVS-E3, F6a-F7a+).
Some photos to whet your appetite – my apologies for the infrequency of actual climbing – but my hands were occupied while that was happening ;-)
