Has anyone ever climbed or bouldered here. I was in a clients office this arvo and he had a poster on his wall. This place looks amazing..............or was this the best part of it? Anyway, thought I might ask since I may be up that gen. direction next week.

Look forward to any responses,

Rich

Also topic about bouldering out there from June 2006.

All covered in detail in the Northwest Victoria guidebook.

Nice spot if you are in the area...

Tis my local crag and is definitely one for the lovers of poorly protected granite offwidths.

I'm not much of a boulderer but the is lots of potential with wind and water sculpted dino eggs scatered all over the park.

It's a lovelly park with heaps of great rock for scrambling all over and perching upon on long summer evenings. Feel free to PM me if you want any local knowledge.

There are some great climbs there...a great 21*** at Melvilles caves and some great things just down below too, like high st layback.

The courtyard is worth a look too for the great fist crack called plumb jam...I think. And eve at the enterance which is a little finger crack.....

Not a huge amount of climbing for the amount of rock (polish pride, the 21 at the caves, is a beauty. Some of the lower grades (which is what i climb) feel like sandbags.) & all short stuff, but a great environment.

Well worth a visit. Sort of like being at wilsons prom if bass strait dried up.

Camping is free. There's toilets and water. It's a state park, so suitably supervised dogs are possible. & Passing Clouds vinyard is just down the road.

When you look out from the top it looks like there's more than there is. Lots of granite to explore, but often either smaller than it looks, or lower angle.

Thanks so much to everyone who has made an effort to reply. Your comments have given me an excuse to go and have a play. I think I might take the mat too!

All the best,
