Fixed gear guidelines in the Grampians 19-May-2018 At 3:42:08 PM JamesMc
Might be worthwhile seeing what Tourism Victoria, not just Parks Victoria think of this???

There's been a lot of work to develop tourism from bushwalking in Victoria to support local economies. (I'm thinking Grampians Peaks Trail, Falls to Hotham track etc, some of which is admittedly controversial in the bushwalking community).

I doubt Tourism Victoria even know that people come from all over the world to climb here - but they should.

IMHO the fastest growing sector of climbing is not bouldering, it's not big adventures at Rosea, it's easy sport climbing. Ever wondered why there are so many posts on Chockstone from people who have lost gear at the Back Wall at Camels Hump? It's because climbers there are packed so tightly they get their stuff mixed up. The routes at the Back Wall probably get more ascents than any others in Victoria in spite of their limited season.

Teen grade sport is the future of climbing. It has barely started off in the Grampians. Should it be stillborn?
