This complex area has emerged from obscurity and now contains a wealth of quality sport, semi-sport and trad routes on some of the best rock in 'Victoria'. With easy access and a good variety of grades this crag is destined for popularity. The
three dimensional nature of the area means you can climb in the shade all day long or be protected from light rain. The big boulder caves also offer great exploration and have the habit of eating loose shoes or ï¿½biners. Routes have a mixture of old
school hangerless machine bolts and newer ringbolts and fixed hangers. A basic trad rack is required on some of these climbs.© (nmonteith)
Access issues inherited from Red Rock Area
Do NOT approach any of the crags in this area across the paddocks from Red Rock Road. The land has recently changed hands and the farmer does not want people crossing the property. Follow the tracks just outside the southern or northern boundaries of the farmland until able to move around the farmland to the area you are going. Please adhere to this to keep open the possibility of negotiated access.
12 minutes mostly flat walk.
Park on Red Rock Road immediately opposite the large pinnacle with distinctive steep orange west face about 1km south of Mt Fox carpark (refer to 'Grampians' Select guide by Tempest/Mentz). Hop over the fence and stroll across the paddocks and enter some light scrub (hopefully spotting the local emus and grey kangaroos). The first big boulder
with a couple of rusty hangers on the west face is Pellant Pinnacle.
