Girlfriend friendly sport crag
9:29:08 PM
A break from people trying to hock ill-fitting gear from mtntools.

Taking the GF climbing in Grampians this weekend (an OK gym leader). I can lead around 23-24 (sandbag dependent), where as 20 on preclipped bolts is really her max. I have a small rack to make life a bit less scary for her but doubt she will be keen to get up any solely trad routes. So, (yes, after using the search engine) I reckon Van Diemens land (for myself), with Bad Moon Rising and Tribute Walls for her would be a good choice.

VD Land & Tribute Bad Moon is a good combo.

Other options...

Red Rock Pinnacles (Vic Ranges) is another top sport for those grades. Heaps of variety.

The Ravine
Heaps of good routes between 18-24. Very shaded.

Has some good routes in the low 20s but not much in the 23/24 grades.

Sentinel Cave & Sentinel Wall
Sentinel Wall has two good easier wall routes (17&19) - the cave is right near by - steep pumpy - grades between 17-26.

Lots of fun short 21s-24s - one 18. Easy to combo this with Sentinal Cave

The Ravine?

Edit: Too slow...

And a large pile (puddle?) of diarrhoea at the base of one of the routes.

I agree Mz vwills, even if Derek my M10 love tells me that poster being a New Zealander might have been talking about sheep.

isn't it rather sexist to assume females are poorer climbers and less bold?
4:45:03 PM
Take her somewhere busy and full of good looking young rippling men, so when she's bored shedless of listening to your spouting about the killer move on the third bolt, she's at least got some extra eye candy.

4:50:44 PM
Two more crags that fit the bill...

Curiosity Crag (Vic Ranges)
Not a great deal in the sub 20 bracket - but enough to play for the day.

Ruined Castle (Vic Ranges)
Multi-pitch sport at grade 20 + lots of harder routes.

Is your girlfriend hot? If so, take to somewhere busy and full of frumpy middle aged men, so when we're supposed to be belaying, we've got some eye candy to be genuinely distracted by.

Vanessa I deleted my message out of respect for good women climbers such as yourself. I apologize.
Sometimes alpinists have a wicked sense of humour that feminists somehow fail to grasp Or perhaps we're simply too oxygen deprived and unable to be understood coherently.
Anyway I'm just a simple alpinist who knows how to use a tool better than the next fool, however vocabulary is not my forte.
