The bridge at the back SE corner of the Grampians National Park Visitors Centre [Brambuk] gives easy access to a number of small cliffs of mostly good clean rock low on the facing hillside. The cliffs are all clearly visible from in front of the Visitors Centre. Cross the bridge and in front of you there is a long broken cliff line across the spur between 2 major gullies. The blocks just before the RH gully are The Pinnacles. From the bridge follow the walking track across the cleared area to the trees. 50m into the trees head R then veer L to follow the L side of a gully up hill to the 4wd track. Walk R on this and at the first high point head up hill and R to The Pinnacles. About 15 minutes to the lower cliff which is on the spur just before the hill drops into the RH gully.
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.
I believe this cliff was first visited by Chris Baxter in 2007. According to a list of cliffs and routes around Halls Gap which Chris wrote but which was published in Argus after his death whatever routes he did on this cliff were not written up. He tantalisingly listed just one route “Year of the Cat” but never wrote it up as far as I am aware. It is possible that some of these routes were first climbed by Chris.
