One problem is a lack of available, up to date and helpful information i.e. a guidebook.
The main recently-published areas in the Central Grampians (Bundaleer, Watchtower) have no shortage of visitors but other areas that are just as accessible go unvisited for months. Specifically there are 191 crags around Halls Gap with about 3000 routes and most weekends of the year you'd have most of those to yourself.

Yes it's a passion of mine and I'm working to address it soon but I believe the community is starving for 'where should I go today' rather than available rock. Spreading the active climbing community across 3x the current set of limited popular spots would be a good start.

That said, also agree with James' point.
