Do you mean castle hill? Thats in NZ bro...

Gramps is by far the best area in OZ for bouldering! Don't care what anyone else says!

If you wanna bit of a guide, or tag along with our crew, give me a hollar

kindergarten always gets shade so is a pretty good summer option. you can also find some shady spots at andersons and campground boulders. And lets not forget Hollow Mountain Cave!

Ahaha you crazy South Australians! All you ever think about is beer! Arapiles is choss for bouldering. I'll stand by that til the day i die! But in an effort to keep you strong SA boys away from the Grampians, Arapiles is rad! Golden Streak is all about temperature. You want a 40 degree day for best conditions, in thongs, with sunscreen on your hands. Then it will only feel perhaps hard V9!! We had preplaced boulder pads, but all the hippies kept stealing em to sleep on. Inconsiderate bastards...
