Lookout Point Wall - Wonderland Range

10:26:40 AM
I spent the day at this lovely small crag on Sunday. I can highly recommend it! With a 10 minute walk-in on flat formed tracks, easy descent gully and a nice view it is hard to beat for an easy day out. Instructional groups use this area and the wear and tear is quite evident. The guide mentions loose rock on some of the routes - but it is all clean and solid after a few thousand german tourists have hauled their way to glory! Reccommend routes include The Mentz File (20) - a superb leftwards rising wall on quality tortoise shell rock. Would I Lie to You (15) - Super juggy corner with many suprise hidden buckets. The last pull over the roof is exciting! Can't Happen Here (11) - Really fun easy climbing on great rock. Jugs, views and good pro! Guidebook is Rock Magazine "The Wonderland Range" by Chris Baxter (1999)

There is an hard thin bolted route just left of Don't Get Me Wrong? Anyone know the details of this? It has four FH's and would be at least grade 24.

p.s. - Does anyone know a contact phone number for Hanging Out climbing guides who use this crag?

Good to hear that it is a quality route.

Cliff sounds really good. Glenn and I will check it out when we get around to re-doing the Grampians Select Guide.

Simey, you know I'd never name a poxy route after you.

The grade 19 left arete of this wall is good too.

Well I am glad that somebody cares about me.

I must admit Chockstone has been providing me with some inspiration for route and cliff names. Should I ever develop an insignificant area full of worthess nonsense, I think I may call it 'Bourge's World'.

It’s encouraging to finally read the words “Mentz” and “good root” in the same sentence.

Well Eduardo, believe it or not there has been more than one satisfied customer who has groaned to the pleasures of Mentz magic.

8:34:01 PM
Hehe, Dirty old man.... :)

Doesn't "satisfied customer" imply some kind of paid transaction?

They pay in terms of lost credibility ...........groan

I think they pay in terms of the fact that any future relationships end up being a disappointment in comparison.

Getting off-root, sorry, that should be off-route or maybe it should be getting back to the original question - I haven't got a record of it Neil. But then again I haven't up-dated my collection of new routes for a year or so.

I am pretty good at indentifing bolts and bolters. These bolts look like early 1990's Glenn Tempest ones. 10mm stainless dynabolts with hangers. The route was a little worn - so it must get some traffic (top-ropers?). It is not new.

The line of bolts you're talking of is a 24, however not too sure of name/first ascension details. From my understanding it was done in the late 90's. Bouldery up to first bolt and just beyond.

Agree that aspect of cliff is great and access couldn't get much better. Does get a bit touristy a times as the top is on the walking trails which head towards the Pinnacle.

Hangin' Out is listed in the phone directory - Earl may know more about this route?
