Jennings Hill

11:24:25 AM
To the South East of Mount Alex, Off the Bendigo-Sutton Grange Road (north east of Elphinstone), the Jennings Hill Road runs off to the North East. There is a collection of very large boulders and blocks. Some of which have faces upwards of 10m. I saw this location from the air the other day, and then did a little explore this morning to see what it was like. Its almost certainly private property, but the nearest buildings are over a km away on the North side of the hill. Discretion or permission should probably be considered. Looks like some potential for climbs and bouldering.

Also nearby there are some good size boulders next to the track on the Leanganook Track, just north of Young's Lane.

Rather than trespassing and giving climbers a bad name, how about you try and figure out a decent access arrangement with the owner?

already on it mate, settle down.

> Discretion or permission should probably be considered.

That sounds like you're advocating trespassing. Regardless of how discreetly it's done, that's probably something that should be avoided, not considered.

Sounds like your arguing for the sake of arguing IMHO.

It's all good, distracts him from complaining about people that drive on closed roads, and any discussion that avoids bolts or Shai Halud is a welcome change on here!

I don't understand why people risk overall access to an area. Do you think a landholder is more likely to allow climbers access if they are politely asked (and possibly patiently explained to) or if they find people on their property without permission? It would make more sense to me to sort out proper access first rather than advise people to discreetly trespass, especially on a public forum.

Yes, Chockstone and TheCrag don't have a big readership outside the climbing community, but it's certainly come up directly from landholders that climbers use them to determine access details to areas. When they are incorrect it does cause problems for people outside the climbing community.

Regarding the gate issue, like into the Ravine, Dreamtime, Weirs Creek, etc again it doesn't make sense to me to risk access to the area for all so that I don't have to walk quite as far.

Thats all fine but you jumped down the OPs throat, he said he's onto it then you continued to lecture...a simple "Cool let me know how that goes" would have sufficed.

If I were in his shoes and someone said my post was advocating something illegal I would edit my post, not say "calm down mate". I thought that my opening post wasn't clear so I expanded on it.

You have then accused me of arguing for the sake of arguing, again making me feel like I haven't explained my position clearly enough and again requiring further expansion.

I guess it's just a misunderstanding on my part.
