Is there any particular reason there's almost no information on Black Ian's Rocks on climb.org.au?

The only reason is that noone has done it. There's no "they" out there responsible for getting these things done so there's still heaps of things to do and not many people prepared to do it.
If you see something that needs doing please do it.

I'm happy to contribute after I visit (I haven't been there before), I'm just a little surprised given the apparent popularity of the place that there isn't anything more and was curious if there was a reason for it.

PS I draw at least as well as Claw ;)

Probably because the existing paper guides do a pretty decent job of covering the area: the black guide and update covers Black Ians fairly comprehensively. The select guide less comprehensively but with more pictures.

[Edit: One thing buried in the appendix of the 2nd ed of the select guide is the camping area that Barry set up for climbers:

From http://www.vicclimb.org.au/renders/view.php?id=48&type=article

There is a camp-site on the private bush block just next to Black Ian's rocks. Look out for a big sign pointing you to "Red Rock Camp". This camp has a shed, lots of off-street parking and a freshwater tank. And, soon, a box for you to put a few bucks in! The walk from your car to the cliff should now take you about 35 seconds.

The site was set up by the local farmer Barry Bell, because he didn't like having to drive his stock past climbers bivvying by their cars! You can just rock up, or you can contact Barry on 53 83 7506.
