When driving thru the albury/wodonga area i have noticed a hill with some red/sandstone looking crags. This is a couple of K's before Holbrook on the left heading from Sydney to Melbourne. Any locals got any goss on this area?

Climbed at The Rock (in NSW) a few times when the misses was living in Wang. The main area - the towers are ok (angie - 15 is really nice), but the rest is a bit crumbly. Was a nice spot on a sunny day in June.

VCC website gives these details for the BCC:

Paul Martin is overseas at present but still visits 'chockstone'.

climbau and myself are around, as well as others who may not frequent this forum.

I think Bob Cowans email has changed from that which Richard listed, but I am not sure what it changed to !

I am going to try and revitalise the group by suggesting we get together for the Touching The Void movie....
& point out the number of visits by new climbers looking for contacts, ... who are going away frustrated?

What is the deal with the Tabletop range north of Albury? There seem to be some fantastic crags waiting for discovery. I assume it is the usuall private property/insurance issue/hate climbers reasoning.

Secondly, does anyone have a CFA map of this area. In case one were wishing to go for a bushwalk with 25kgs of natural gear (for weight training)?

A bit further afield is Mount Mittamatite, I've never been there but those who have say the area is great. "If it was closer to Melbourne it would be climbed out" etc. There's also Mount Stanley, which has a few routes on it, probably needs a map to help make it popular, any takers?

If you've got any questions, post here and hopefully Paulie will take time to answer, he helped heaps with the Eastern Victoria guide and knows the Albury/Wodonga area pretty well.

I've been out to Mittamatite for a recce and found it quite awkward to get around with the guide, seems like some directions are maybe arse about. Stanley looks alright, but I only found half the climbs or else the heights are a bit exaggerated. But there is heaps to do up here, including new stuff.

Sounds like Mittamatite needs a map as well, any takers? Russ Crow visited the area a while ago and had some suggestions for the new version of the guide but is (still!) busy getting stuff about Tongue Point (The Prom) to me for the Eastern Vic reprint while I'm just waiting on word from the VCC to take it to the printers. Hopefully next edition ...

I could pull my thumb out and get around if someone spots me a copy of this so called 'guide' and points me vaguely in the direction of it. I need some pointess weekends filled in with scary chossy Trad.

Mittamatite is wicked. Need a local to show you the spots though. Bob Cowan in particular has put up some soaring hard crack lines. Great rock and lots of routes, with potential for 100 times as many.

Mt Stanley is also a great wee spot, but again, helps if you have a local to show you around. There is a magnificent crack there waiting to be climbed, prob one of the best long trad lines I've ever seen...

Email me on paul.martin@encams.org if you want to know more.
