Access Report April
On Saturday March 5th, Bec Hopkins was our VCC/CliffCare rep for the Grampians Clean Up day in the Pinnacle area. She was one of a number of volunteers from a variety of groups that regularly use the Grampians National Park.
The Pinnacle area near Halls Gap sees a huge number of tourists each year and unfortunately, with that comes quite a lot of rubbish. Some of this ends up being quite inaccessible to later retrieve due to it landing on ledges below. Bec and a couple of volunteers from Absolute Outdoors donned their gear and abseiled down to the dirty areas to clean up.
Six large bags of rubbish later and much sweat lost, the area was once again clean. Thanks to all who put up their hand to help out on the day and Tammy Schoo at Halls Gap PV who organized the event.
Thanks also to the volunteers who helped out at Mt Arapiles clean up day – notably Keith Lockwood and Kieran Loughran and Zoe Wilkinson from Parks Victoria who encouraged all to help out with the Summit Road cleanup.
