Site navigation

A Crag Guide gives an extensive view of all sub areas and climbs at a point in the index. It shows a snapshot of the index heirachy, up to 300 climbs (or areas) on a single web page. It shows selected comments climbers have made on a recently submitted ascent.

At a minor crag level this should be suitable for printing and taking with you on a climbing trip as an adjunct to your guidebook.

1. Rhino's Horn 3 routes in Crag

Summary:
All Trad climbing
Description:

The attraction is climbing in a remote, rarely visited area. The obvious outcrop with the distinctive "horn" on east side of the Victoria Range Track. Location: GR 089634

Access Issues: inherited from Victoria Range

The Victoria Range was badly burnt in the fires of February 2013 but all areas are now open to climbing (Feb 2014). However there are access changes to the cliffs in the Eureka area.

Approach:

Walk up the Victoria Range Track from Glenelg River Road to the top of the range. Leave the track about 100 metres past the helipad and walk up though light scrub.

1 Zebra Crossing

Start in the gully at the right-hand end of the main wall. Up the gully to the block on the right. Hand traverse left above the lower overhang to the bottom of a flake. Layback the flake and the crack above, step left and up the short chimney.

2 Rataxas

As much excitement as being chased by a herd of rampaging rhinos. Start near the left end of the cliff. Up the black groove until it is possible to traverse awkwardly right to an exposed pedestal in the middle of the overhanging wall. Follow the shallow groove up and right until jugs lead steeply to the top.
