So we hit up some easy slab routes at Big Rock at YouYangs .... They loved it sooo much. And I want to take them out to a new area.

Got a home made wall at home and now the younger one can get to the top if there is a cracker/grape/gummy bare as incentive!

Does anyone have any suggestions where we could hit up next ... not too far from Melbourne?

They just love getting out bush ... They have got proper climbing shoes, helmets, full body harness ... and I was a guide way back when.

Cheers in advance,

Ta

Mt Buffalo cracks? ;-)

Perhaps a better bet might be Mt Sugarloaf in the Cathedral Ranges. Although I'm not sure how much of it is single pitch. Certainly I took my own kids there "way back when".

Might as well just go do Blade Ridge.
