Good climbing suggestions for kids aged 4-10 16-Oct-2023 At 8:12:23 AM IdratherbeclimbingM9
A lot of the climbing around your area is limited in scope and ‘trad’ based, but there’s plenty of variety amongst it and a pleasant day can be had if you’re prepared to invest the time at more obscure locations and set up top-ropes for the kids on harder (for them) climbs, or lead potentially scrappy short climbs.

Places worth a go include;
Corryong (an escarpment on the hill to west of the town).
The Rock (north end - plenty of kid friendly stuff plus some harder climbing for yourselves).
Mt Pilot (near Beechworth - some easy kid stuff, but generally a tad harder than the above locations due being smoother granite. Many climbs have lower-offs installed).
Stanley (south of Mt Stanley summit - short isolated climbs and nowhere near as compact as Mt Pilot).
Mt Buffalo (a magic place and quite spread out, but has quite a few kid / family friendly climbs, though some take some searching out if not attending with someone who has local knowledge).

The pick of those places is Mt Buffalo, Mt Pilot and The Rock.
There are other locations but they are much more obscure and less well documented.
