DescriptionCape Hauy's main attraction needs no introduction. The Totem Pole is probably the sickest tower in the world. But this area also features the Candlestick, another brilliant sea-stack with a character all its own.
This is a beautiful, wild place, and is a must-see destination for climbers and hikers alike. If these routes are a bit too spicey for your tastes, you absolutely must hike out to see them.
Getting ThereA well maintained trail heads south from the Fortescue Bay beach. After about 90 minutes of rolling terrain the trail ends abruptly. From this point head north along a subtle climber's trail, down the gently sloping north side of the cape. Eventually you will be able to traverse west with a few easy downclimbs. Once the Tote is visible, head back south to a bolted belay anchor.
