Access issues inherited from Mt Alexander

Most of Mt. Alexander is a regional (not national) park, so while climbing is permitted general rules apply; dogs are permitted on leash, fires only in established fire places (from Parks Victoria website).

Downhill and right from 'Love and Theft' on the big boulders near the track. Stand-start and climb the hanging arete.

FA: Peter Reynolds, 24 May 2015

This problem is on the Raptor boulder, a ways downhill from the lookout, fronting the walking track.

On the uphill face of the boulder, climb the left most line on the steeping slab via a high crimp. Stand start.

FA: Mike Hitchcock, 2015

Climb the central line up the slab, just to the right of Wedge-tailed Eagle. Stand start.

FA: Mike Hitchcock, 2015

Climb the right line on the slab, stand starting at the slight bulge right of Black-shouldered Kite.

FA: Mike Hitchcock, 2015

Climb the thin face to a gravelly mantle.

FA: Mike Hitchcock, 2016

Hard open project up arête. Technical.

5m uphill of the Raptor boulder. Sit start the slopey rail in the tiny little alcove.

FA: Mike Hitchcock, 2015

On the boulder 3m uphill from the Raptor boulder. Squeeze up the double arete from a sit start.

FA: Rob Cotton, 2015

Starts easy on a line rising line of good holds; ends at an almost blank mantle. Lucky the feet are so big! More scary than hard.

Climb the high, easy angled hand crack. Watch the loose block near the top!

FA: Uli Aschenbrenner, 2015

Single move mantle just to the right of 'Coffee Bean Crack'. Start both hands on the hold at the right, left heel on the chalked nub.

Climb from inside the cave to the L of Teach your friends how to mantle. Start on the jug at the end of the dirty rail. Pull around the edge and follow the mantle. Hardest part is keeping your ass off the ground

Open project on the arête, uphill side of coffee bean Boulder. High and technical.

From the crimps on the lip, head up and left through small sharp holds and heel hooks.

FA: Mike Hitchcock, 2016

This climb is on the back of the 'Meditation' boulder, 30 south of the Raptor boulder and fronting the walking track.

An easy no-hands problem on the uphill side of the boulder.

FA: Mike Hitchcock, 2015

When you're facing Raptor Boulder this is the line directly behind you. Follow quartz blocks to the top, sit start is trickier. FA done with a brush in my mouth
