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..

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
