Ethic inherited from Grampians

Grampians access issues have emerged due to potential damage to the environment and cultural sites. Climbers need to be aware that there are significant Aboriginal sites in the Grampians, especially in cave areas. Leave no trace and treat everything with care.

The following is a basic list of things climbers in the Grampians need to be aware of. For more detailed information visit

Climber’s Code

Find out about and observe access restrictions and agreements.

Use existing access tracks to minimise erosion - don’t create rock cairns or leave marking tape.

Do not disturb nesting birds or other wildlife.

Vegetation, even on cliff faces, is protected. 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.

Large groups can create problems of crowding and excessive damage around cliffs. If you plan to take a group of ten or more people climbing, you are required to register to ensure there is space.

Respect sites of geological, cultural, or other scientific interest. Don't climb near Aboriginal sites

Vehicles must stay on roads open to the public; off-road driving is illegal.

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

Keep campsites clean.

Avoid all risk of fire - do not light campfires outside of official campground metal fire pits.

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

Respect established climbing traditions in ethical matters such as the use of chalk, pitons, bolts etc.

Avoid indiscriminate or excessive use of fixed equipment.

Responsible climbing will protect cliffs and ensure continued rockclimbing

Grade Route

The line 1m right of Feverish starting at the good pocket. Make tenuous moves up slopey rails to a high top out.

Start on the low end of the horizontal flake at the far right of the wall. Climb the rail up to a tricky mantle.

A fun, though dank, warmup flake traverse starting in the small corridor between the two slabs.

Stand start on the left of slab. Follow the flake to the top.

An area classic up the middle of the slab (unfortunately also a bit of an eliminate). Stand start with terrible smears and crimps and move up to the vague slopey rails (the good holds out right are off) and top out. Delicate, technical, and fun.

Sit start and climb the line up the right side of the wall using the arete and good holds on the face.

Sit start at a sloping flat hold on the arete and climb up the vague nose just right of Golden Arete.

Popular. Sit start on good flakes at the lowest part of the roof and climb the line of flakes, pinches and edges all the way out to cruxy moves at the lip. Finish at the big jug on the face or top out.
