Description

This is a very small area of limited potential on the south side of the creek above The Gap Vineyard.

NOTE: Details for Boroka Buttress taken from VCC online update 2001.

Access issues inherited from Halls Gap Area

A low profile always helps to avoid too much attention from tourists and park rangers

Approach

Follow the first road south from the Halls Gap- Stawell Road on the west side of the junction of the Halls Gap-Stawell Road and the Halls Gap-Pomonal Road. This road swings east, then southeast. Park 150m further on after cleared land appears on its east side. Walk southwest up the south side of the creek for ten minutes to the cliff, keeping 100m above the creek.

Ethic inherited from Halls Gap Area

Bolting, is considered illicit, along with the rest of the park and other National Parks within Victoria. Only alter routes after considerable consultation with first ascensionests and local climbers.
