Grampians Access Issues

I'm sure most of you have seen something about this.

Long story short, Parks Victoria are blanket banning climbing in most of the Grampians National Park.

No consultation, no clear communication, rangers fining people at areas that Parks Vic press release have said we can climb at.

Much more information:

Some of those bans are in really strange places, with no vegetation or aboriginal art. The reasons behind the bans seem very vague and I imagine the whole thing is super frustrating for the locals.

I'm glad we have the BMC in this country. Sounds like Gramps climbers are starting to organise and are trying to begin a dialogue with the park management. I hope it works.
