Friend's status update on facebook: It's windy and rainy and the only place to be in natimuk today is the cafe, coz there's no climbing happening today!

:-( and i'll guess it's only going to get worse..
12:39:13 PM
it's abjectly bloody awful at the moment. try steep sport in the gramps if desperate tomorrow.

dam.. Hmm don't really want to drive 5 hrs to climb sport haha and my partner doesn't want to boulder.. oh well, another day. Thanks for the feedback :-)

ah so desperate. Radar says it's cleared up a bit.. Would it be dumb to go?

Things cleared up a bit in mid afternoon and I drove down to have a look at the Mountain Lion in Vic Range. First time back there since we did the first routes.
Threw a saw into the car just in case but only came across 1 tree across road which I could dodge around but almost lost it into table drain - should have put it in 4WD. Had to move a few branches off road at other points but not too bad all things considered.
Anyone know anything about bouldering at Mountain Lion? Saw one hard problem on a yellow overhang near ZsaZsas crack. Don't know if it's a project or complete.
Here's a useless photo showing where the problem is. The problem is on the yellow rock but is obscured by the bush. Didn't know the problem was there when I took the photo.

There are also some other boulders that appear to have potential.

I have been doing a bit of development in the area of the Mountain Lion, and I am not sure if that project has been done or not either... looks like it will go at V13 plus. I am trying to put together a collection of problems in a pdf so if anyone knows about that hard line, please let me know the details so I can credit it.

ps. there is a lovely V5ish problem to the left of the insanely hard one, next to the the gully and detached block.

Rather than put them in a PDF you should add them to the, that way others can keep adding to the guide. It has great photo topo generation for boulder problems.

I have been putting small snippets up on the crag, and will upload it all when it's time... but will be doing a separate guide to distract me from all the work I should be doing, just because
