Description

A few ok routes hidden away in the jungle surrounding the Andersons bouldering area. Most people don't even realize that there is roped climbing tucked below the main cliffs.

Access issues inherited from North Grampians

This area is now reopen after the fires in early 2014.

You can see the latest parks update on track / area closures at: http://parkweb.vic.gov.au/_data/assets/pdffile/0003/621246/Grampians-National-Park-Update.pdf

If there are crag specific closures, please update the access on those crags.

Approach

The following routes are 40m down from the right hand end of Gun Buttress at two large boulders which create a small well sheltered alcove. If you follow the lower of the climbers' tracks you pass very near these large boulders. They are protected from the sun most of the day.

Grade Route

Short and sharp. The overhanging orange wall with three FHs.

FA: Steve Chapman & Brian Gray, 2000

The original line (24) traversed left and then back right, avoiding the dyno. The direct version powers straight up past 3 FHs.

FA: Brain Grey & Steve Chapman, 2002

A bit contrived. Grade may vary according to exact line taken.

Start: Start 1m right of 'Bolt Action Directe' at thin right-leading crack.

FA: Steve Chapman & Ross Timms, 2002

A pumpy rising traverse that barely gets more than five metres from the ground. Some would call this a highball boulder problem.

Start: Located on wall opposite 'Bolt Action'. Start at left end of wall in alcove at well chalked slopers.

FA: Brian Gray & Steve Chapman, 2000

Can be finished either by stepping left to easier ground (20) or gently right to high jug (22).

Start: Start as for 'Pump Action' but continue straight up wall.

FA: Steve Chapman, Brian Gray & Rob Booth, 2000

Not the beginner route that Kevin tried to pretend it was.

Start: Starts on the front side of the 'Pump Action' boulder, facing the 'Hollow Mountain' carpark.

FA: Kevin Lindorff & Michael Wust, 1983
