Pullout bouldering


The Pull-Out is a small quarried area just down from the summit. When driving south from the summit, park before Dog Rocks in a wide spot on the left (about 1km from the summit) and walk uphill on the right across quarried blocks and vegetation for about 5 minutes - it is very close to the road. The Pull-Out consists of a mixture of slabs and aretes in an old quarry. On a large block to the left of the bouldering area lie three chiselled and bolted routes (up to grade 28) courtesy of Matt Brooks. The problems are on two tiers.


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).

Climb the wall and crack.

wall without crack


Climb to hole in the slab, step left and finish direct.

Climb to hole in the slab and then continue direct to the top.

Use the sloppy sidepulls (not the hole) and climb to the top.

Climb the line of drill holes.

Slab right of the drill holes.

Climb the beautiful arete on the right-hand side. A bit scary.

FA: Charlie Crease

Climb the wall right of Charlie's Arete using undercuts.

FA: Charlie Crease

Use the double undercuts about 3m right of Charlie's wall to climb the wall to the top. Traverse slightly left to top out due to loose rock.

Start near the end of the line of reasonable undercuts. Traverse right to left and finish up Charlie's Arete BUT no undercutting at any time.

Climb the wall right of superfly. Named in memory of the legend Dave Pegg.

This is deceptively difficult. A very short problem - one hard move. Use the positive holds on the arete to reach the obvious ledge (finish here) - use a controlled pull from the ground - do not jump from the ground. Stand start.

FA: Simon Weill

Sit start, up slight overhanging ctack to mantle.

FA: Andy crow & Courtney Whitehead

A technical climb that doesn't ease until the very top. Climb the beautiful arete and top out.

FA: Peter Reynolds & Peter Reynolds

Traverse the crack from left to right and top out.

FA: Peter Reynolds, 28 Mar 2015

Sitstart and climb the arete.

FA: Peter Reynolds, 28 Mar 2015

The obvious diagonal seam down left of TTR climbs well and has undoubtably been done before. Slightly left of where marked on topo.

At the far left of the top tier is a an overhanging traverse. Start from sitting and follow the line.

Left arete

Climb the arete without the left-hand side wall.

This problem is on the outcrop on the horizon on the right as you walk up to the Pullout - about 5 minutes walk. Stand start and head up the vague arete
