Lots of scattered climbing, short cliffs, easy accessible sport routes and good bouldering throughout the valley surrounding Halls Gap
Lots of easy access climbing around the town of Halls Gap. Lots of slabby climbs with a few big rooves capping different cliffs. Theres a fair bit of guiding and commercial operation in the areas of "Punter's Pinnacle" and "The Watchtower". Boulderers frequent the rock around "Venus Baths", providing some entertainment for gawking tourists.
A low profile always helps to avoid too much attention from tourists and park rangers
Access to Halls Gap is Via 'Grampians Tourist Road", 'Mt Zero Rd' or from Stawell or Ararat
