Conquer Bluff Knoll by abseiling down the face of it! Learn abseiling from scratch or just practice on Castle Rock, then take on one of WA's highest peaks Sunday. With all transport from Perth and equipment included, this is an experience that will stay with you for the rest of your life!
Bluff Knoll is so high that it gets snow occasionally! As Western Australia's 5th highest point, hiking up and sailing down it like a professional is a very rewarding experience, one for the '100 things to do before you die'!
Departing from Perth, you will check in on the Friday night to your basic but comfortable accommodation and have discussions about what the weekend holds for you. You'll also help to organise the gear, which for novices will familiarise you with the equipment and prepare you for going it alone; experienced abseilers will have the chance to discuss their interest with like minded-peers.
Begin the second day with hot breakfast before you're led to Castle Rock. Castle Rock is smaller than Bluff Knoll but still definitely nothing to sneeze at! On Castle Rock you'll be introduced to safety skills and techniques for multi-pitch decents whilst enjoying the view of the Porongorups. Whilst out there, you'll be able to sit and enjoy the view over a lunch of cold meat and salad rolls, included in the package. Spend the afternoon getting acquainted with the equipment, refining your skills and building up your confidence for the next big day. Rest up that night over a barbeque back at the accommodation.
After another friendly night of barbequeing at the the Stirling range retreat, you'll wake early, have a basic breakfast and head out to the Stirling Ranges for the abseil of a lifetime - the Bluff Knoll. 250m high and northwest facing, you'll use your skills to take on the mammoth landmark. Look out over the north-west bay, over the farming land from the breathtaking heights... just in case you've forgotten how spectacular and expansive Western Australia is!
After a full day's abesiling, you'll be taken back to your original meeting point in Perth. Now that's how to make the most of your weekend!
