Cathedral Range, Vic

Iím planning a trip this weekend to introduce my kids to real rock (theyíve only ever climbed indoors) and Iím looking for some advice re top roping anchor points in the Cathedral Ranges. Iíve read through the VCC Eastern Vic guide, and it seems there are some good top roping areas along the Wells Cave track and the Sugarloaf Boulders.

The guide mentions that there are good anchors for these areas, but given the guide was published 5 years ago I was wondering if that was still the case? Does anybody have any info one way or the other? Would slings and carabiners be sufficient?

Any other good top roping areas close to Melbourne? (preferrable East)

Thanks, I really appreciate your help!

I climbed at fly paper wall probably 5 or 6 years ago with my kids. Easy setup of hangers if I remember right, probably need reasonably long slings as the hangers are back a bit. Climbs there are short and very easy.

Take a rack to sugarloaf to open up your options and or a big bit of static rope.

The Wells Cave track is no straight walk up, bits of climbing on the way. The top of the cave has one fixed hanger.
