Description

The Wall of China area has the largest collection of accessible middle grade routes on good rock close to Halls Gap. Whilst the Main Wall is the most obvious and attractive cliff the climbs on the Southern Outcrops are worth checking out. Climbing on the Main Wall is unfortunately right next to the most popular easy walking track in the Grampians; expect an audience. The Southern Cliffs are mostly out of the public view.

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

Follow the Pinnacle tourist track from the Wonderland car park. Take the RH branch of the track just after crossing the creek [before it descends into the Grand Canyon] and follow it to the Cool Chamber and Echo Cave. This is the RH end of the Main Wall area. The LH end is marked by the obvious bulging crack line of Chinese Take-away

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.
