Access issues inherited from North Grampians

This area is now reopen after the fires in early 2014.

You can see the latest parks update on track / area closures at: Grampians-National-Park-Update.pdf

If there are crag specific closures, please update the access on those crags.

Approach

Approximately 1.5km North of the Heatherlie Quarry track there is a rough 4WD track leading west (park here unless you have high clearance). From the end of this try and follow old cairns up the hill to the base of the pinnacle.

Descent notes

Simplest descent is to walk about 50m left from the top of the pinnacle, then scramble down.

Climb up the right side of Split Pinnacle through a bulge, then move left around to the front and up to a ledge. Continue up to the diagonal break that goes across the ceiling, head along this and onto the face, then move hastily to the top.

FA: Wayne Maher & Peter Cunningham, 1990

This starts on the right-hand side of Split Pinnacle.

  1. 20m Climb up the steep wall, then move left at the break in the ceiling and head around onto the arete, then go up to a stance below the roofs.

  2. 15m Traverse to the left over a flake to a chimney through the roof, then climb this.

FA: Wayne Maher & Derek Visser, 1989

This climb is on the left-hand side of the outcrop. Climb up to the ledge, then traverse right under a block and climb the chimney.

FA: Peter Cunningham, Glen Donohue & Ann Scholes, 1989

Start 4m right of 'Lou-Ellen the Great'. Up onto ramp then up the wall above, just right of the tree. Slightly contrived to avoid the scrub off right.

Walk left for 40m below the broken crag which continues from the left edge of the ain pinnacle, to a right-facing corner with large boulder at base, just right of prominent overhangs. From the top of boulder, get into corner and climb it.

FA: Philip Armstrong & Jeremy Maddox, 2002

Just left of the roofs; up the crack system and then finish up right

10m further left, just before the cliff breaks down, there is a vertical crack and right-trending crack sharing a start. Follow the vertical crack.
