Peak Charles
Not the most accessible climbing area in Australia (820km southeast of Perth and 2601km from Melbourne), nevertheless Peak Charles definitely deserves a visit if you're in the area. A large dome crafted from fine orange granite, it contains many smaller faces and gullies where most routes are found. The range of climbing styles and grades should satisfy most people.

ROCK: Fine orange granite

LOCATION: Peak Charles is approximately 120km north west of Esperance in WA. If youre crossing the Nullarbor Plains turn south at Kalgoorlie.

Norseman is about 120km south of Kalgoorlie. There are two turn-offs one at 55km and the other 70km south of Norseman, turn right onto one of them. These roads rejoin as the Lake King road some 25km further on. Some 5km past this junction is the turn-off to Peak Charles. It is another 20km to the peak along a sandy but good two wheel drive road.

Access from the west via Lake Grace and the Lake King road is less certain and better with a 4wd after rain.

CAMPING: The camping area has a great dunny, plenty of fire wood and not quite level camping sites.There is no water or other facilities provided. Vehicles are not common in the area so its best not to break down.

BEST TIME TO VISIT: Spring and Autumn are the best times of year to climb. Winter can be cold and wet while Summer is hot, but there is always somewhere shady to climb.
