Fixed gear guidelines in the Grampians 17-May-2018 At 3:56:47 PM armstp
The tier system sounds like a workable idea. Particularly as it can be fairly easily communicated and used. On thecrag site it would be an easy matter to identify each Grampians cliff in the intro to the cliff by its tier. It could also be used in guidebooks. Have the definition in the guidebook intro and then have each cliff allotted a tier.

Another proviso in the general tier definition could be along the lines that no matter how the cliff is rated overall each new route should be assessed as to whether it can be climbed readily and safely in a ‘lower’ tier fashion [assuming trad is tier 1]. This is just to make clear that an overall cliff rating of tier 3 [sport] is not a license to bolt an easily trad protectable climb in the area.

A fourth tier could just be Climbing is illegal in this area [for any of a number of reasons, cultural, environmental, private property etc].

Tied in with a set of new routing principles such as Wendy suggested this should be a good input to Tracey’s suggested draft.
