Any good sport stuff under 20 at the Gramps?
3:27:02 PM
Heading out on a climbing trip this week to Araps and Gramps. Heading to V D's Land at Gramps. My partner is not up to 20+ on the sharp end yet so I was wondering what else there is, if any, that has stuff under 20 (sport) at the Gramps so she's not limited to being my belay slave the whole time?

There's heaps of great climbing in the Grampians under grade 20. I know because I love climbing in the Gramps and can't climb 20.

Hardly any of it's sport climbing though. If you don't have enough gear then just top rope.

Summer Day Valley would be a good place to start if you're top roping.

Tribute Wall has two routes under grade 20 which are good. It is also on the way into VD Land!

As you can see there is a hand full but why is there not more considering the wealth of climbing in the Gramps? Is it a case that the vast majority of easy climbs are protectable by traditional means and therefore why bother? Or is it a case those with the equipment to place bolts simply couldn't be bothered as there after the harder climbs. The glory, fame and such! Any thoughts?

I think it is more to do with the available protection. sport routes in the gramps tend to be massive scoops with no cracks and the like, or over hanging pocketed wall

Most of the routes below grade 20 have been done previously on trad gear. There are obscure areas
where they may be un-climbed routes that could be sport routes i guess.

Thanks kieranl and Neil, I actually remember reading that thread now. my brain starts to turned to boiled cabbage at work so that may be why I forgot. Will definitely head to Tribute Wall.
