Chockstone is a sponsored, but non-profit, non-commercial website. It provides content primarily relevant to rock climbers in Victoria, Australia. No claim is made about the accuracy or suitability of any information, see the full disclaimer.
Users are encouraged to contribute to this site's crag guide, photo & video gallery, tech tips, interviews, gear, book and movie reviews, dictionary, links list and the popular forum. Simply email material to Chockstone or post to the forum. The forum has become the central focus of this site with hundreds of climbers, most of them locals, logging on each week to discuss all things climbing.
The ultimate aim is for the guide to cover every crag in Victoria no matter how small, at least as an overview. Not with a view to replacing printed & published guides, but as supplemental material, kind of like a comprehensive crags review. The idea being that climbers can browse text, photos and video before investing time into visiting an area new to them. This ambitious undertaking will obviously take many years to be completed. Any support or contributions are naturally very much appreciated.

routes best, usually in mid to high teens. I don't chase numbers, just have fun. My other interests include
