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.

Long/Lat: 144.207527, -35.986766
- Unique Features And Strengths:
The northern most climbing in Victoria. Too hot in summer. This crag is best in winter when everywhere else in Victoria is too wet.
Large granite monolith near Pyramid Hill on the Tragowel Plains. The rock is large grained and very coarse and is of variable quality. There are some quality routes, but beauty may be in the eye of the beholder.
- Access Issues:
No access issues. This area is in a nature reserve and contains some rare and endangered flora and fauna. It may look pretty scrappy, but please take care and look after this area if you visit.
From Melbourne/south, head to Pyramid Hill and then drive north on the Pyramid Hill - Leitchville Rd until you see the Major Mitchell Trail sign to Mt Hope. Turn left and drive 1.5 km on the dirt. Turn left at the first opportunity to get to the Picnic Ground, or drive another 500 m to the next left to reach Suicide Rock car park
- Where To Stay:
You can camp at Mt Hope, but it's pretty rough - no water or toilets. In summer the flies will carry you away during the day and the mosquitoes will take over after dark.
Trad as well as bolted sport routes, with a mix of carrots and fixed hangers.

Walk into Mon Chimney and head up the back wall and then out to the chains on top of Winterdreams
The arete with the bolts to the right of the cave. Step up onto the large flake to clip first bolt then up. Chains to belay.
The hand to fist crack. Best to tape up.

A Suprising Time Out
The middle of the slab to the left of Sleigh Ride past two bolts
The obvious dog-leg crack in the right hand side of the Side Outcrop
Start up Sleigh Ride to where the crack turns left, then head straight up.
The slab and arête to the right of Sleigh Ride. A long way to the first bolt, which needs a wire as a bolt plate won't fit.
Do It In Deni
The thin seam/crack in the wall across the gully and directly behind Persia 79. Thin and tricky to get good gear.
