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.
