"Old photos?!$%!. Surely GFDonc could be providing precise GPS coordinates with an optimised route plan.

Seriously, phone technology and apps are good enough these days to be able to provide accurate enough GPS references to be able to navigate to and locate the base of a climb. Precisely locating a few key climbs as reference points on larger remoter cliffs would save a few people a lot of time and anxiety about whether they were starting in the right spot. It would be good selling point for a guidebook on obscure cliffs in the Grampians, eh GF!

For the large number of cliffs with phone reception you could make good use of this without even needing a separate device. I'd imagine most of Mt Buffalo would be in that category. Without phone reception a lot of people could still utilise their GPS sports watch before taking to the last resort of buying a small hand-held GPS for the price of a big cam.

The Crag does have the facility to add a location for each climb, but it would also be handy for other reasons to know if an area/location also has phone reception. I will try to remember to record these things next time I find myself a-hunting.
