This area really needs a good single source of beta or a guide! I took a
day trip out that way by myself yesterday... using these directions from
"From Melbourne take Calder Hwy to Romsey/Hanging rock turn off. Turn
right and travel 3.6km then turn left at the Lancefield (Hanging Rock) rd.
Straight along this for 7.1km to cross rd. Straight ahead at cross rd into
Egans Rd, turn right at end. Travel 2.5km to 3 way fork, take the middle
rd. From 3 way fork travel 1.5km to Y intersection then take the left rd
for another 1.5km. A small group of boulders is just up on the right side
of the rd. This is the first group of problems. A few short cracks, a
flake problem and some slabby/seamy looking things. To get to the next
group of problems walk 500m further down the rd to a steep motor bike
trail on the right. This will lead you up to the main group of problems."
I thought the final distance was closer to 2.5km not 1.5km from the
Y-intersection. If you can't see obvious boulders beside the road you
haven't driven far enough!
The place is now covered in thick green regrowth from the fires - and
getting around between problems can be quite a bush bashing affair! The
rock is great quality and some of the problems look damn hard. I advise
bringing a good thick bouldering mat and a spotter. The landings are
generally pretty terrible with lots of blocky granite waiting to wipe out
Can someone else write-up a bit more info for a permanent 'guide' section
for this site? It would be great for others to be able to locate the info
and history and have it recorded correctly.
