A sports crag on steep to vertical limestone, with solid (mostly) stalactites and stalagmites 100m from the Indian Ocean.The rock is fantastic to climb on on although there are some sandy sections, and the upper parts of the climbs may be quite sharp.

Info from "TheCrag"

Getting There 

2WD (RECOMMENED): 1st option: Follow Caves Rd south and turn onto Contos Rd. Follow this till you reach Contos Spring. Park here and walk northwards along the beach for around 45 minutes. Once you reach the second rocky outcrops entering the ocean, take the track that heads inland towards a large cave. Once at the cave/ cliff face turn right and follow this to a juction. Take the right option which remains at the base of the cliffs and walk for under 5 minutes. When you reach the bolts in the cliff you are there! 2nd Option: On Contos Rd park at the Cape to Cape walking track. Take this track northwards for roughly 45 minutes. It will follow the ridge line until it descends to the junction at the base of the cliffs previously mentioned. Turn left when you reach the track junction and walk for a few more minutes.

Alternately, and the approach we use is to park at Redgate beach and follow the cape to cape south. It's about the same walk in as above but offers shade and is far closer than the contos Rd option, about 20kms less driving.

4WD (REALLY REALLY NOT RECOMMENDED): Travel south on Caves Rd for 2.5 km from the Caves Rd/ Redgate Rd junction. Take the 4WD track on you right which is just before the cave access road for Calganup Cave. Travel along the track (Bob's Hollow Rd) for around 3km until its end. From the end of the track follow the walking to the base of the cliffs which takes you to the cave just north of Bob's Hollow. Keep folling the track southwards until you reach the track junction previously mentioned. THE TRACK IS VERY ROCKY WHICH GETS WORSE AND WORSE AS YOU TRAVEL ALONG IT. EVEN A RAISED 4WD WILL STRUGGLE NOT TO CLIP SOME OF THE LARGE PROTRUDING ROCKS ON THE ROAD. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
