Grampians Access 2019 6-Mar-2019 At 2:57:58 PM armstp
Looking at Parks February update as attached by Chris220220 there would appear to be an awful lot of climbing in protected zones. It is hard to know how to interpret this as the brochure is somewhat contradictory. It states that there are still hundreds of known climbing areas open in the Grampians, but that comment only makes sense if the only closed areas are the 8 specifically noted as such. But the update also states that climbing is prohibited in all special protection areas - SPZs. If the protected areas marked on the attached map are all SPZs then it would appear that the majority of the climbing away from the Halls Gap/Wonderland/Rosea/Bundaleer area is now off limits. As well as the climbing in the Victoria Range those shaded areas appear to cover such historic climbing areas as Mt Abrupt, the Dials Range, Barbican and Mt Difficult, additionally they include popular and extensively maintained destinations such as Summerday Valley and Hollow Mt. Possibly Dreamtime as well. Does anyone have any clarification [not speculation] as to whether this is in fact the current situation?
