Northern Group

Description

PLEASE NOTE: As it stands (as of 20/07/2018) there are multiple route and area descriptions that are incorrect (most glaringly in the less trafficked areas of the Mount). Efforts are being made to fix this, but be aware that any new-routing activity or general climbing in the Northern Group should be done with consultation to locals, the existing guidebooks, and The Australian Route Register (more detailed information on some single-pitch climbs: http://www.climb.org.au/index.php?page_id=10&action=region&region_id=8).

Emergency Location: Mount Arapiles, The Watchtower Faces Area

Access issues inherited from Arapiles

Bird Nesting September-December Raptors usually nest on the following climbs in Spring : Cassandra, Eurydice, Harlequin Cracks, Revelations. Nesting usually finishes mid-December. There may or may not be signs in place at these times. Please keep 50m clear of these climbs if there appears to be nesting activity.

State Park

Ethic inherited from Arapiles

Mount Arapiles is first and foremost a trad climbing area. The few sport climbs tend to be in the higher grades where no natural pro is available.

Bolting, particularly retro-bolting, is discouraged and should only be undertaken after extensive consultation with the local climbers, first ascensionists, etc. Inappropriately placed bolts have been chopped.

Do not chip the rock.

Look after the park.

  • Stick to the paths.

  • Don't disturb the wildlife.

  • Routes near peregrine falcon nesting sites are closed in the spring.

  • Minimise the impact of your camping (fuel stoves not fires, take your rubbish with you, etc).
