Hi Jackson,

I think you will be very uninterested in Melb crags. The granite is a total disaster compared to anywhere else in the world. Camels and Werribee are fun for a few days max.

Most people drive to gramps & Araps. You really want a car with clearance and all wheel drive only ( Subaru or RAV4 are good) to get to crags in vic range and dreamtime. A standard sedan will get you to most places, but will be trashed quickly by the corrugated dirt roads.

If your not good with run outs I would invest in a stick clip. The sport routes have pretty big run outs here. Some are bolted badly. Unfortunately combined with the long drive it can sometimes get tedious as you spend a lot of the time not climbing. Still best rock in the world and worth the hassle imho.
