Access issues inherited from Hollow Mountain (N & NE side of Mt. Stapylton)

ACAV Note: Parks Victoria has advised that rock climbing restrictions may apply at this location. Formal advice has changed several times during 2019. Please refer to the following link for current and detailed advice: https://parkweb.vic.gov.au/explore/parks/grampians-national-park/plans-and-projects/rock-climbing-faq

Approach

This is the overhanging wall directly above 'Sandinista' Wall and right on the Hollow Mtn summit track. The boulder problems are on the upper side of the cleft through which the walking track passes. The landing is steep stepped rock so mats are essential - and you will be forever moving them out of the way to let walkers get past - it is really tight in there. 'Problems' are described left to right facing the cliff.

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 https://www.cliffcare.org.au/education

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

Dynamic one-mover

FA: Toni Lamprecht, 1999

More like a route. Long and intense line right of 'The Cop...' going all the way to the top of the wall.

FA: Julian Saunders, 2000

Woody type problem up a very steep wall. Sit-start right of 'Ground Zero' and finish at the twin pockets. If you link this back into the finish of 'Ground Zero' you get 'A Long Way From Home' (V7/8)

A big traverse starting to the right of Problem #3 and finishing as for Problem #1

FA: Julian Saunders, 2000

Tricky problem going right into the crackline of 'Impact Zone'

The LH crack weakness. Solid for 3!

The RH crack weakness starting with a sit-start
