Grampians Access meeting – Feb 2019

Updated: Mar 7, 2019



The VCC and CliffCare, along with 6 of the members of the newly created Grampians Access working  & technical working groups, will attend a meeting with Parks Victoria on 12th February.


As noted by land managers – ‘The purpose of this meeting is to discuss upcoming changes to rock climbing in the Grampians National park and surrounds, and confirm next steps and opportunities to work together’.


Attending Climbing Representatives:


Paula Toal – VCC President Tracey Skinner – VCC/CliffCare Access & Environment Officer Steve Monks – Victorian Climbing Rep Adam Demmert – Climbing and Developer Representative Simon Weill – Bouldering and Developer Representative Adam Merrick – Western Victorian Climbing Club (WVCC) Rep and Education advisor Ross Taylor – Climbing community Communications/Media (Vertical Life) Nina Scott Bohanna – VCC  PR and Communication advisor


We are in no doubt that this will be a challenging process. We look forward to some clarity from land managers around the current status of climbing in the park and surrounds, and the opportunity to collaborate  to ensure that not only are park and cultural values protected, but the rights of climbers as a legitimate user group are taken into account.

I will have further information available soon on the Grampians Access working group and its members. If you would like to offer a particular set of skills or help out in any way that you feel could be beneficial to Access, we also have a technical working group. Drop me a line cliffcare@vicclimb.org.au
