A good crag with easy access and a good range of climbs.
The route descriptions are taken from "Climbers' Handbook to the 'Wonderland' Range and Halls Gap Area" edited by Bill Andrews (published late 80's(?)) and the "South-Eastern 'Grampians' Update" compiled by Bill Andrews and available online.
Climbs described right to left. Most of the climbs have not been verified.
Note that the area was burnt during the 2006 fires so references to trees in route descriptions are probably superfluous as the fire was quite intense. Also, the ground coverage is still quite sparse so please try to avoid damaging the area.© (willmonks)
Access issues inherited from Halls Gap Area
A low profile always helps to avoid too much attention from tourists and park rangers
From the Halls Gap-Stawell Rd, travel 7.5 kms towards Pomonal/Ararat to Tunnel Rd. Turn right into Tunnel Rd and travel to the very end where the water pipe from Lake Bellfield emerges.
Walk the signposted walking track for around 10 minutes where 'Blazed Rock' will appear about 50 metres uphill on the right.© (willmonks)
Ethic inherited from Halls Gap Area
Bolting, is considered illicit, along with the rest of the park and other National Parks within Victoria. Only alter routes after considerable consultation with first ascensionests and local climbers.
