Best Grampians bouldering area for beginners

Hi all

First time poster here. In September I'm heading to the Gramps with 2 of my buddies for their first outdoor trip (my second - the first was a long time ago).

Can anyone please recommend the best bouldering area for beginners in the Grampians? ie. relatively easy accessibility and the most quality V0 - V3 climbs?

We'll be staying in Halls Gap and will hire crash pads for the weekend. We all boulder together a couple of times a week at Northside. Indoors I'd say the best we have done is in the realm of V5, but generally hover more around V3-4 mark.

As I'm the one who introduced my buddies to bouldering, I want to make sure our first outdoor trip is a good one, to keep them coming back!

Appreciate the help! Can't wait to get out there. September is way too far away :)

Cheers,
Tristan

I'd head to Andersons: https://www.thecrag.com/climbing/australia/grampians/hollow-mountain/andersens

While in the area it's worth heading up to Loopeys for Fashion and Passion and the view over Taipan: https://www.thecrag.com/climbing/australia/grampians/hollow-mountain/area/12976309

You also get to have a peek in Hollow Mountain Cave on the way up there.

If you're staying at Halls Gap, wander up to Venus Baths. It's good!
