Fixed gear guidelines in the Grampians 13-May-2018 At 7:15:45 PM kieranl
Thanks to Wendy for her sample guidelines.

I added a couple of suggestions to my list this morning but got called away while I was preparing a comment about them.

I left off the original list the next step beyond no fixed gear, this no climbing or bouldering. There are already such areas in the National Park where no public access is allowed. Some of these are Reference Areas, though I don't think there are climbing possibilities in the existing ones. There is also at least one area closed for environmental reasons which does contain climbing; Eastern Wall. Indigenous cultural sites are also closed to climbing by default. It may be that some areas with a number of non-public indigenous sites might be designated as non-climbing/bouldering to avoid accidental damage. I have one candidate area in mind, which currently has no climbing/bouldering that I know of, but I'll need to discuss with more knowledgeable people before I identify it.

The other option I added is to have hand-drill only areas. Maybe an option for predominantly trad areas where the odd bolt is useful. Those who have not had the joy of hand-drilling don't know what they've missed.
