Access issues inherited from Halls Gap Area

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

There is a signposted walking track leading from Halls Gap to the Pinnacle. The track starts from the corner of the camp ground just beyond the swimming pool. Follow it turning off to the L towards the Pinnacle. This approach heads up under Mackey's Peak via a modern track that appears to have been constructed by bolting several thousand barbeque plates together. The track continues to the Pinnacle and most of the cliffs in this section are accessed from this track.

Ethic inherited from Halls Gap Area

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.
