McFarlanes Hill climbing

I'm putting this in "general discussion" because for some reason I can't seem to add a new post to the "crag and route beta" section. Anyway, I've recently put up a new route in the 'Dairy' section of the McFarlanes Hill climbing area in West Wodonga. "Love is Life"is a 12m (approx) grade 14 which takes the centre of the obvious slab situated approximately 25m diagonally downhill and left from the large overhanging boulder that is home to "Where Bovines Fear to Tread". This new route passes 3 FH's to the anchors and is a good little introduction to lead sport climbing. FA: Ben Mace and Andy Schmutter Sept 2010.

nice one mate, that'd be a great introduction to slab climbing.

Three bolts in 12m? ~> Bah humbug.
It is granite, so it is either crack or slab, ... or maybe thuggish bouldering for the powerful types.

Heh, heh, heh.












Seriously, it is good to see that you are out and about on rock, even if it is in obscure locations!

I've already done a copy and paste and put it in the East Vic file, ready for the next edition.

I did heaps of work on Felltimber (nobody calls it McFarlanes Hill) on thecrag.com a couple of weeks ago including photo topos.

I'll add this once I take a photo of it.

Not for a year or two.

Yes there are a few V5s and V6s around - I haven't done them myself. There are also a few projects of unknown difficulty.

I am very tempted to leave Felltimber out of the guide now ... that's a pretty good guide to the area. Maybe just have a general rave about the bouldering and point people at thecrag.com. Does that sound OK?

No, found it painful to go to each topo then back out again to navigate to the next topo... Unless there is a better way the site is designed to navigate between topo pages?

Fine with me. I do still need to go and take a couple more photos as some of the ones I took didn't work out.

Good job on the topo Gordo! BA, leave it in the next guide...most ppl I know still prefer hard copy guide books :)

Also a book can actually be taken to the crag. Even if you have thecrag.com at the crag I don't think it would look very good on a small screen. Has anyone tested thecrag.com on a smartphone?

I only have an iPhone. Does anyone have a smart phone who can test this?

I tried using iphone access to Grampians crags earlier in the year and found screen size an issue. Would be ok if you took ipad to the crag.
