About Mount Frankland:
Mt Frankland is a large granite dome set amongst the pretty karri forest near Walpole. It is up to 160m high in places and is mostly slabby.
There are about 30 routes in total. A lot of the routes are bolted (though some are still run-out), some of the routes require bolt plates. Bring the rack along too, as there are also lots of trad lines. Most of the routes are in the mid-high range, it is not the best place for beginners. It is also not really possible to set up top-ropes, so a leader is required.
Access is very convenient, with camping available at the carpark. There is even a small hut there. It is about 5 minutes walk from the carpark to the dome. There are two guidebooks to the region, South Coast ROCK and West Australian ROCK (both by Climbwest).
