Summary

Bouldering on the beach

Description

A variety of boulders, ranging from safe and low, to some rather large highballs. You may really need a pair to do some of the larger routes and descent of the larger boulders may be "problematic."

This area has enormous potential for new routes.

Access issues inherited from Wilson's Promontory

Keep all off track activities to a minimum.

A free permit is required to climb in this National Park, which is easy to get from the information center. If the ranger is unsure about the permit tell them it is at the far right of their counter (there are lots of casual rangers working here who are unsure of all the processes). It is a simple form to fill out solely for emergency purposes. Parks Victoria only recognizes the following locations as climbing areas at the Prom:

-Mt Bishop

-Elephant Rock

-Mt Oberon

-Little Oberon (Trackside Wall)

-Turtle Rock.

There are no access issues for bouldering at beaches

Approach

Follow the track to the beach from Whiskey Bay car park. Once at the beach you'll realize where the boulders are...

Where to stay

Tidal River, provided your happy paying $60 for an unpowered campsite.

Ethic

It's bouldering, so clearly no bolting. Don't brush routes and keep chalk to a minimum and clean up after yourselves.

A million billion tourists have probably scrambled all over these rocks over the years.
