Did you know that you can create an account to record, track and share your climbing ascents? Thousands of climbers are already doing this.

Description

Here is another area of choss. Some of the rock here looks good but it doesn't seem that anyone has found it yet. Apparently there have been many worthless climbs done here that have not been recorded. Let's hope that they stay that way.

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

The west face has a band of cliffs with large orange overhangs sloping diagonally across the hillside with the highest outcrop directly below the summit. The overhangs look really good from the road but are disappointing on closer acquaintance. Even so, they should yield better climbs than the existing ones.

The first climb is the chimney that divides this outcrop right of the prominent overhangs. We move right from this point.
