hi guys, i was just thinking of taking the kids camping for a few days to Mount Alexander. Has any one camped there in the past and if so what type of facilities exist also i was just wondering about bbq's and what type are they eg solid fuel, gas or electric as i will have to purchase a little gas stove if it is a total fire ban.
warm regards simon
also as a side note are many of the easier grades (kids type climbing ) top ropeable
more warm regards simon

Hi Simon, I'm not sure what camping facilities are at Mt A as I live locally and only day trip there.

Just a heads up about total fire ban days and stoves. The CFA website has words to the following effect.

Under no circumstances are and solid, liquid or gas stoves to be used in the open, a tent, or caravan annex on days of total fire ban.
See http://www.cfa.vic.gov.au/restrictions/can.htm for more info.

If you were unfortunate enough to get caught using a stove or worse still accidently lighting a fire, you would wind up with a hefty fine. Cold roast chicken and salads are a useful standy by if the weather is looking a bit dodgy

Cheers, Alison

If you head along to the main climbing area, but turn right and head down to the lower tier, there are two crack climbs next to each other 12 and 14 (I think) these can be toproped using a tree and some natural gear. Also, next to little bo peep (left of it) there is a climb that starts with a big log at its base this can be toproped as well (bolts I think).

Hope this helps rather than hinders!

Was my local crag at one stage....if you want easy access to top rope spots and kid friendly climbing, you can't do better than Wabbit Rocks.
