An intro to Grampians
About An intro to Grampians:
The Grampians are a massive tilted sandstone arena of cliffs, caves and huge walls. The area is mostly undeveloped, with dirt roads and bad sign posting being the norm. The rock quality is generally superb orange and grey fine grained sandstone much like Arapiles. Routes tend to require natural protection for the most part, although there are several amazing sport climbing venues. Bush camping with abundent wildlife make the area a paradise for the overseas or interstate climber. Over 4000+ climbs have been established with many more awaiting the first touch of human hands.
