Bouldering/soloing nearish Melbourne 16-Nov-2011 At 11:15:21 AM barney800

I've recently moved to Melbourne from the UK and am getting a bit stir crazy while I wait for my climbing gear to arrive. I can't just hook up with someone and head out to the crag either, as my climbing partner moved with me and wouldn't be impressed if I abandoned her to go out climbing all day!

We picked up a bouldering mat and had a play in the Grampians already, but it would be nice if there was something that was doable as a day trip. I keep on seeing vague comments on here about granite blobs near Black Hill and Mt Alexander. Does any more detailed information exist yet? I'm a bit of a punter when it comes to bouldering so don't rate my chances just wandering around and finding problems unaided.

Alternatively, I quite enjoy soloing short (10-15m) routes. Probably up to around 14ish (VS 4b in the UK, I haven't quite figured out the grades here yet). These would have to be somewhere with pleasant walking though, as my partner doesn't have enough faith in her own immortality for soloing.

Anybody got any good advice?
