Sorry to report that the 500m mark is not related to any devious plan to exclude Arapiles from the discussion. I thought that I'd achieved that end up-front by including the word "Grampians" in the thread title (this is a joke BTW).

While somewhat arbitrary it includes a significant number of cliffs, including Rosea and Bundaleer. Enough other cliffs are also close enough to this mark to hopefully make people take notice of it.

I can't see any real problem with people working out if their new route is in the moratorium range; just drag out the mobile phone and check the altitude. Even I can do that.
