Description 

Steep sport climbing and exciting trad climbing on sandstone walls carved out by the Murchison River.

Situated on the Murchison River, a long way from anywhere, this beautiful isolated area is probably one of the best-known crags in Western Australia.

Kalbarri offers a variety of climbing styles, from steep bolted sport routes to longer trad routes. The area is probably most famous for the sport climbing area called the Promenade, the routes here have featured in many photos, and probably have led many people into thinking this area is about sport climbing alone. Don't let this fool you though, there is a lot of trad climbing to be done, with the potential for new routes still relatively untouched.

Whilst Kalbarri is a long way to go for a single crag, it is an amazing part of Australia and well worth the trip.
