IMPORTANT UPDATE! March 2019: Parks Victoria have recently announced that climbing is now prohibited at many areas covered in this guidebook. These unprecedented bans have been made without any consultation with climbers, without providing any credible details to back up the reasons given for the specific bans, and have been made despite Parks having endorsed climbing at these areas as recently as 2016. For more information about these the bans, the specific areas where climbing is now prohibited, and what you can do to help see https://savegrampiansclimbing.org
