Summary

A good beginners area with bolt protected easy climbs leading to lower offs.

Description

This is the slab below The Garretts.

Access issues inherited from Halls Gap Area

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

Approach

From Delley's Bridge follow the walking track along Fyans Creek for about 600m until about 100m past Boulder Rock. Look for a large sawn log on the track edge. Head uphill 50m to the LH end of the slabs.

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.
