The You Yangs – An Introduction to Granite

Climbing at Royalty Walls is a great introduction to the granite rock found at the You Yangs. There are a few easy cracks which provide a good taste of crack climbing and several sport slab routes in the intermediate grades. These short slabs are a great introduction to the fine art of ‘slabbing’ and are a perfect way to improve your footwork.

Easy access and a number of short routes ensures a nice day of climbing out at the You Yangs.


Due to the small nature of the crag, trip numbers are limited to 10 participants.

Please contact the Trip Leader Jason Jacobs, prior to the trip, to indicate your interest.
