For the last five years, Mike and Dave Kellermann, Mikey Forward and Sophie Vivian have been developing extensive new bouldering in the Grampians National Park (along with the occasional visit of ex-pat Tim O’Neill).
This video is a short teaser that focuses on just one of these areas. Unfortunately, the area suffered a severe bushfire in early 2013 which left large regions of the Park closed most of the year. The native flora and fauna is no where near recovered, and out of respect for the bush and at the request of Cliffcare we have been withholding the guide and will continue to do so until the new growth is established, erosion risk is diminished and until the native flora gets a firm hold against exotic species brought in on shoes etc. Please be patient! The Grampians is a huge place and there is always somewhere else to visit within the Park!
With most first ascents done between 2009 and 2012, there are over 140 new developed problems with classics ranging from V0 to V12 and with many spectacular V14 projects for the future
