In the words of the crag's co-founder Martin Lama, "George Carlyle was the discoverer of this climbing Mecca, and returned with stories of the new cliff he found. So off we drove PAST the Grampians to this small patch of bush and rocks.... all it really provided were a couple of nice face routes (the 20 in particular is quite nice) and a few others. I doubt it has been visited since, other than for checking whilst compiling the SW guide."
To gain access, drive out of Cavendish towards Balmoral for 12kms. Take a left for 3.5kms to the Dundas Scenic Reserve. (See: Approach Map). At the signpost, duck left down a track and shortly coming to a T intersection continue around to the right for 100m. Walk uphill through the scrub to the north facing cliff. The routes begin on the rightmost buttress close to the track, with more on the east side, including "Whispers Of Immortality", the 17m grade 20, which fires up the Arapiles like rock, heading diagonally left up a ramp to a juggy break before moving right around a bulge and up to the summit.
