Hiya

Does anyone know of climbing at or near Mt Hotham/Dinner plain. Is there any sort of guide to the area? If there is climbing, is it worth a trip or three?

Cheers,

In the Eastern Vic guide Mt Tabletop is listed which is accessed from Flowerbag plain (between Hotham and Dinner Plain) via a 90 minute walk.

Only five climbs to grade 20 and no higher than 30m... James Mc did clib there so hopefully he can provide a bit more information.

I'm looking for new locations to practice basic mountaineering; has anybody climbed at Mount Tabletop in winter? If so, do you have any thoughts on the area? (It's a bit far to go on the off-chance that it might be worthwhile).

l "rock" climbed at Mt Tabletop about 25 years ago. It was about the worst climbing I've ever done. Went back for a walk a few months ago. The only thing that had changed was the brambles which had got worse.

The south east side of Mt Tabletop has a long cliff about 2Dm to 30 m high. It's very steep so I don't imagine it would hold snow.

If I was in the Hotham area and wanted to alpine climb I'd go to Feathertop or Buffalo.

Do you own a 3D printer that could help him out bro?

If I was at Buffalo, I'd go to Hotham as it's way higher for a start, but agree that Feathertop is likely better.

Dry tool venue?

Any pictures?

OK, thanks for the info. Do you recall if it was granite, or something else?

I really love the atmosphere of the Buffalo area, but it seems to need a massive and sustained dump of snow to hold much of it, and that never quite happens. :(
