Summary

Lots of scattered climbing, short cliffs, easy accessible sport routes and good bouldering throughout the valley surrounding Halls Gap

Description

Lots of easy access climbing around the town of Halls Gap. Lots of slabby climbs with a few big rooves capping different cliffs. Theres a fair bit of guiding and commercial operation in the areas of "Punter's Pinnacle" and "The Watchtower". Boulderers frequent the rock around "Venus Baths", providing some entertainment for gawking tourists.

Access issues

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

"Please do not add any routes (old or new) to this database for the time being."

Approach

Access to Halls Gap is Via 'Grampians Tourist Road", 'Mt Zero Rd' or from Stawell or Ararat

Where to stay

If you just need a place to sleep, the Halls Gap Caravan Park offers superb facilties. If you want a roof above your head, theres a few lodges and inns, as well as holiday houses

Ethic

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.
