Does anyone know if there's any info about this online? I don't really want to fork out for the whole Eastern Vic guidebook for a few boulder problems. Otherwise I guess I'll just chuck the mat in the car and hope the crux isn't at the top!

Cheers.

It's pretty obvious when you get there. It is a great place to wander around and just climb inspiring looking lines rather than ticking by numbers.

Thanks. I'll see what I can find. It certainly looks like an idyllic spot.

Take a board too, the waves at Squeaky are usually better than the boulder problems :-)

I had a good play on the boulders on Saturday. It's a stunning spot. What's the route climbing like on the Prom?

I don't have a surfboard yet, which is a shame as the waves looked perfect for a punter like me that afternoon. I feel a return trip is on the cards!

Long slabs and some cracks mainly, a lof of it is very 'knobby' climbing like the slabs at Squeaky There is a brilliant G16(?) crack up on Mt Bishop which you can see as you're driving past Squeaky (up on the left), its the barely visible crack to the RHS of the obvious chimney which is on the left arete (does that make sense?!). I'm not sure what's open now though, a lot of the walls were closed a long time ago (10+ yrs) and since the fires and floods I can imagine that further off track walking bans will have been imposed. The Eastern Vic guide has all the routes in there plus info on walls that are off limits, still check with the rangers for further info.

The other brilliant crack is Catchalot (21) on on Whale Rock. Beautiful flake crack splitter. There is also a good grade 22ish arete to the left of it as well with amusing horns you have to sling. I think both of these routes are ok to climb.

It's the thin right curving flake crack just to the right of the deep chimney at the left side of the big block.

Yep, the thin flake in the pic is Catchalot, brilliant climbing, which is also the "grade 16" I was thinking about, I didn't think it was that hard...must've been some time ago!

What are you going to have left to say if you use that line now, when you get old Paulie?
Heh, heh, heh.
