Hezbollah Area

  • Grade context: AU
  • Ascents: 3




The main feature of theright hand end of the Lebanon cliffs is the long multi pitch slab climb up the walls left of the big gully chasm.

Access issues inherited from Eastern Mt Difficult Range

The Greater Gariwerd Landscape Management Plan, Map 4C, shows that climbing is currently permitted (Nov 2022) on the following crags: Syria, Lebanon (including Hezbollah), Pine Wall and Lunar Walls.

The status of the other crags in this area, including one of the best ones between the permitted climbing areas of Lebanon and Pine Wall, i.e. The Promised Land, is unclear.


Drive North about 1 km from the Pine Plantation Campground heading towards Roses Gap to the 2nd 4wd track on the L. Walk or drive up to the end of this and continue up and leftward to the cliff. Head L along the foot of the broken cliff until you hit a large slabby area bounded on the R by a bushy gully between it and a big steep buttress. This is the RH end of the cliff where Hezbollah is. About 10mins walk from the road, 5 mins from top car park.

Descent notes

From Hezbollah walk R and descend the first gully. An easier and quicker descent than expected.

Ethic inherited from Grampians

Grampians / Gariwerd access issues have emerged (2019) due to potential risk to the environment and cultural sites. Climbers need to be aware that there are significant Aboriginal sites in the Grampians, especially in cave areas. Please take time to understand the access situation. Leave no trace and climb responsibly.

Please note that due to the fact that the Grampians is a National Park, dogs and other pets are not allowed in the park except in vehicles on sealed roads and in sealed car parks.

===Cliffcare Climber’s Code===

  • Find out about and observe access restrictions and agreements.

  • Use existing access tracks to minimise erosion - keep to hard ground & rock surfaces.

  • Do not disturb nesting birds or other wildlife.

  • Protect all native vegetation, especially at the base of cliffs. Wire brushing to remove mosses and 'gardening' in cracks and gullies is not permitted. Use slings to protect trees while belaying or abseiling if belay anchors are not provided.

  • Respect sites of geological, cultural, or other scientific interest. Do NOT develop new climbs in or near Cultural Heritage sites.

  • Chalk has high visual impact - minimise your use of it. Parks Victoria have requested the use of coloured chalk in Gariwerd.

  • Minimise the placement of fixed equipment, especially where Trad gear is available. Respect any "no bolting" areas.

  • Do not leave any rubbish - take it home with you.

  • Dispose of human waste in a sanitary manner (bury, or even better pack it out). Do not pollute water supplies.

  • Off-road driving is illegal in Gariwerd.

  • Keep campsites clean, and do not light campfires outside of official metal fire pits.

An OK sort of slab adventure with adequate protection. At the very RH end of the cliff where you first arrive when walking in.

P2 (25m, 8) Step R and up thru juggy break in overhang. Follow the easy diagonal crack Rward to below the attractive L curving corner.

P3 (25m, 17) Up corner and out L to FH. Thin moves up to and over bulge. Step L and climb head wall.

Follow the diagonal on P2 of Hezbollah for about 10m then head straight up the black streak finishing steeply up the head wall above the orange streaks.

FA: Philip Armstrong, Peter Cody & Chris Armstrong, 2006

Nice clean slab route. 10m L of Hezbollah. Up slab past 2 FHs to overlap and belay. Traverse off L or R [belayed] to abseil trees.
