Apparently PV have decided to close half the Grampians without any consultation. They really need to be specific and say exactly which crags are closed otherwise there will be a whole bunch of oblivious climbers climbing and then PV will complain about it. I hope people respect the bans but really what crags have they closed exactly? People are resorting to superimposing maps over the Crag to have a guess, Parks Victoria need to communicate with the VCC or whoever so that both parties can have an idea of what is actually off limits. No doubt there are some sensitive discussions going on but in the meantime Parks Victoria need to be specific, otherwise as far as I'm concerned they have no right to turn around at a later date and complain about climbers ignoring the ban. You'd hope that they have put some planning into this, given we've known this was coming for months, and the whole situation shows the utter incompetence of Parks Victoria. They need to get their shit together and actually communicate their message.

Simon Talbot said he'd get all the "geocodes" out there for the banned areas in his interview with ABC radio, where are they?
