Subsequent to the popular
forum topic, an inaugural Chockstone Gathering was held at
Dog Rocks, Mt Alexander on October 18th
2003. The chance to meet fellow Chockstoners
while partaking of a barby lunch and a little climbing drew quite a crowd,
possibly as many as 40 people!

An amalgamation of several routes, including Neil on
the full body workout splitter jam crack Bravetheart (18), Neil again
stemming Jack Russel (22) the corner crack, Alistair making a near
clean onsight of the Dog Rocks test piece Scottish Resign (24), Neil
once more, getting spat off Mo Money (25), and some bouldering action,
including a glimpse of Julian on the FA of a new problem. Audio
included! (Video by Michael Boniwell).
Meg, 1.1 minutes)
The FA of a new, high ball boulder problem is boldly
ascended by Julian Saunders, despite moss, loose granite flakes, and
no chalk bag. A nice dyno guards the opening moves, then it's sketchy
pseudo-mantling on a mossy slab scoop before topping out gecko style. Audio included! (Video by Michael Boniwell).
