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 Grampians
Please note that due to the fact that the Grampians is a national park, dogs and other pets are not allowed in the park except in vehicles on sealed roads and in sealed car parks. See http://m.parkweb.vic.gov.au/explore/parks/grampians-national-park/safety-and-regulations#overview
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)
