Some easier juggy sport climbs on weird blobby grey rock. Hidden away on a ledge system above the access track to VD Land. Gets earlier shade than some of the other crags here. Not a great place for kids and large groups due to the scrambly access and deep ravine.

Access issues inherited from North Grampians

This area is now reopening after the fires in early 2014

Here's an update from Parks Victoria (18 September 2015):

People – it has been a long time coming, and the recovering areas thank you for your patience. As of the 18th September, most of the climbing areas in the North Grampians still closed, will once again open. These areas though, are still fragile and deserve to have a little extra thought given, if and when you decide to head there. The Mt Difficult Range is still in a very fragile state and because of this, some of the closures here will remain in place, except for those cliffs listed. Check out the list below and please continue to read the care info following it. Thank you all in the climbing and bouldering community who have been understanding of the closures and have been actively promoting it to others. Lots of other areas have seen renewed interest. Whilst Nature will continue to throw these events at us, it is obvious that there are always enough cliffs and boulders to go around.

To aid the long term recovery of the Northern Grampians there is a general closure in place for rock climbing throughout the Mt Difficult Range, except for the main climbing areas stated below. Please support the long term recovery of fire affected areas by remaining out of any closed sites. See closure map for further detail. While Parks Victoria regrets the need to enforce closures, substantial fines will be imposed on those found in any closed, fire affected areas.

The approach is a little tricky. Scramble up right leading ramp to base of Koalasquasty Wall. Walk 50m left from Koalasquasty to short bit of rope hanging over rock step. Hand over hand up this then left across ledge to enter slot and routes. Parts of this may be marked with cairns. Routes start down in the base of this slot. Take care not to fall down or drop things into the crevasse below the belay chockstones!

Grade Route
24 Powderfingers Sport

Rightmost route on the wall up orange scoops.

18 MC Hammer Drill Sport 16m, 5

Second route from the right on the wall on grey juggy rock - which actually isn't that juggy! Fixed hangers.

17 The Suburbs Sport 15m, 5

One of the best easier sport routes in the 'Grampians'. Knob ridden terrain with a slight left trending line. Fixed hangers and lower-off.

19 * Lost in Translation Sport 17m, 7

Starts on the chockstone down in the slot - belay off the ubolt. Very pleasant right trending wall climbing with a punchy pumpy finish.

23 * Olympic Airways Sport 15m, 7

Quite a bouldery little number. Translation - it's a sandbag! Start at first bolt of LIT then climb straight up with a series of really tough sideclings and no feet. Nick Sutter fell off this.

21 ** Back Stabbath Sport 17m, 6

The original route on the wall and probably the best. Featured steep wall climbing. Slight left trending route with a bouldery middle section on slopey holds. A mix of ubolts and fixed hangers.

FA: Neil Monteith, 2005

22 * Pant Tearer Sport 16m

Bouldery crux. First bolt of 'Back Stabbath' then slight left leading line which punches through a small orange shield of great rock. Bottom is a bit sandy.

20 Cool Crux Clan Sport 18m

A big low traverse left from the chockstone belay then up the grey juggy wall. Tricky mantle to finish.

18 Pink Void Sport 15m, 6

Very problematic access! Located on the far left end of the crag. To start the climb you need to rig an abseil rope from rock bollards or trad on the slabby side, abseil down into the trench and do a hanging belay in the chimney. Head down left side of void (facing VD Land) climb down trick void, bridge accross, clip bolt, unclip first bolt, pull onto face and up left and up the orange wall. Confused? Apparently it's missing an anchor as well.
