I am planning a trip into Green Gap Pinnacle later in the year and am trying to hunt down some recent access details. Has anyone been there, how long to get in, camp sites etc.

Hi,

I am keen to come in with you and check the area out.

I've heard it's an awesome cliff and fantastic rock but a bit out there in terms of it's long routes in a remote
area. the rock apparently is very solid but sounds a little wierd, not sure exactly what that means but I
heard it described as kind of pingy by one party who's been in there.

Give me a ring or drop me an e-mail when you have some dates for the trip in mind.

Are you interested in doing established climbing or new routes?

A reasonable size group might be a good idea as it's a fairly remote region and access for rescue / evac
would be most likely problematic.

I'll try and find someone who knows a bit about this crag. I will start with Michael Hampton.

Regards,

Josef, as John has suggested, the recent fires in the grampians have burnt out most of the Serra range including the Green Gap Pinnacle.

Access to most of the central Grampians from Miranatwa gap in the south to Roses gap in the north is prohibited except for some of the main tourist roads and a very few walks.

I was involved in fighting the fires in January and have just retured from a weekend driving around the open areas checking out the damage. Believe me it is extensive, and it will be some considerable time before much of the park is opened to the public.

Keep an eye on http://www.parkweb.vic.gov.au/1park_display.cfm?park=109 as they update the information re access etc fairly regularly

Cheers, Alison

From Tracey's access updates (note green gap pinnacle under central serra range):

[192] THE GRAMPIANS Top
2nd Sep 2009 Tracey Skinner
GRAMPIANS ACCESS UPDATES

Cliff areas still closed due to the Dec 05-Jan06 Bushfires.
Cliffs not mentioned here can be presumed open, but if in doubt please contact me and I can let you know. Tracey Skinner cliffcare@vicclimb.org.au (0425 771413)

The area around these cliff is generally classed to be still quite fragile. In the case of some of the Central Grampians cliffs, these areas have been temporarily closed due to the release of the endangered Brush tailed Rock Wallaby

PLEASE be aware that there is limited bush camping in the Victoria Valley. All entrances are signposted. These areas are still very sensitive.

There is no camping allowed in caves in the Grampians National Park.

Campfires are only allowed in official fireplaces

It's a bit odd that Green Gap is officially closed. When I went in to Rosea with Tracey Sylvia in December 2007 I specifically asked Sylvia about Green Gap and she said that rarely visited crags like that would be OK to visit as numbers would be very low with consequent low impact. If I'm not mistaken quite a few people have climbed at Dreamtime Wall since the fires..

Tis true DW has seen quite a bit of action. I'm not sure that there was really a lot of awareness that these areas were closed because generally speaking, no one went there. It was only through searching for something completely different that I found out they were officially closed.

My apologies for being a bit lax of late with updating all of the CliffCare page. As noted the area is open.Have updated quite a bit on the page http://www.vicclimb.org.au/index.php?location=cliffCare Slap on the hand for me! Actually, am hoping to get a dedicated CliffCare and Access site up and running soon. Stay tuned.

Cheers,

Tracey
