This was my freeform comment:

The Grampians, and certain crags in the Grampians, are extremely important to climbers in Victoria, Australia and all over the world. There are world class bouldering and climbing crags which have extremely high value to climbers and by extension also have a high economic and tourism value. No climbers want to detrimentally impact on cultural sites of significance or the environment, however, it would be equally wrong for climbing to be banned because of potentially minor impacts. The best outcome is shared usage and minimising impacts without outright banning!

Additionally, it is important to realise that the Grampians crags have varying amounts of value to the climbing community. Only some of the crags are actually world class, some are national class and some are just 'local' crags. Any trade offs in negotiations must be focused on the world class crags with the national class crags second with local crags a distant third. All crags are not equal!
