Description

A few good boulders just up Joseph young road when coming from Harcourt.

Access issues inherited from Mt Alexander

Most of Mt. Alexander is a regional (not national) park, so while climbing is permitted general rules apply; dogs are permitted on leash, fires only in established fire places (from Parks Victoria website).

Jump for the small slanting sidepull on the arete with your right hand. Get established on the large rail above before topping out over the upper arete

Possibly the best line in the area. Climb the gorgeous arete using holds on the adjacent walls after a burly stand-start See http://mountalexander.blogspot.com.au/search/label/Artful%20Dodger

Stand start with left hand in the open corner and right hand on a low crimp. Punch up for better holds on the arete with the right hand, then technical moves allow a crimp on the front face to be got with the left hand. Carry on directly up the face/arete (still tricky). A fantastic climb.

Climb the arete/slab on the slabby left-hand side. Eases at the finish.

Climb the arete on the steep right-hand side. A tricky stand-start eases after a few moves

FA: Martin Lama

Stand on the large boulder to the right of Lama's V3, pull on to the wall and grab the large ledge below the top. Top out. Height dependent. A bit weird really.

Overhanging arete on the boulder right of the main boulder. Short. Opposite Lama's V1. Not on the bolus boulder.

Start on the boulder to the right of the Bolus boulder. From a good hold on the right arete, traverse from R to L (tricky move in the middle) ending up on the Bolus boulder. Finish easily. I was there. The rock was there. I thought I may as well climb it. It may well have been done before. Most probably by me!
