After negotiations with the VCC, the private landowners have granted permission for access to the Stapylton Boulders via their property. The boulders sit on park and private land boundaries with most of the problems only able to be accessed via the private property itself. The owners have kindly agreed to allowing climbers to access these problems. Signs have been installed outlining the guidelines for use and the 10 metre boundary around the boulders. Please respect the rules which are all perfectly understandable:
• Remove all rubbish you bring
• No Toileting on the property
• Stay within the 10 metre boundary
As you will read in the article,(on the CliffCare page under ARTICLES) this positive result began with an initial enquiry by David Pearson and Chris Webb-Parsons about access issues to the boulders. With their new bouldering guide to the Grampians due out shortly it was important that these boulders could be included and that the relationship with the landowners was a good one, built on trust and honesty. Hats off to them for going about it from the start with the right intentions, and setting an example to others about how things can be done. And hats must go off to the landowners for allowing us access. Any problems, issues or concerns please contact me at email@example.com Besides the general care of the area, keep an eye on the property as well. Anything untoward, let me know even if it has nothing to do with bouldering. A good way to give something back.
Nice work, thats a great outcome.
Something thats always worried me is that fence post underneath Happy Camper. Sure you can pad it up and get some spotters, but I still think someone will break their back on it one day. It really does spoil the finish to a number of popular and quality problems. Was this issue raised in any of the talks? It sounds like the owners probably wouldnt mind if the fence was moved so long as its done properly.

Come on Hazza, man up! I have fallen of that (many a time) and its all sweet.. You land kinda on the ledge/in the gap, so if you have a pad against the post you are all good.. You shouldnt fall off there anyway with your vice crimps!
