Natimuk Climbing Museum.

I noticed on a VCC upcoming trips post, a comment about the ‘recently opened Natimuk Climbing Museum’.

Being unaware of this until now I’m seeking further information so that I can possibly support it, due it being Australian based and my belief that our climbing heritage, young as it is by comparison to some others, is worth preserving.

Does the good Chocky readership have any further details?

In the past I have supported the Nuts Museum, though as a generalisation I’m not that keen about our ‘heritage’ going offshore...

Having long ago konkad kerchoo I heard that bro simey will be in it; but what I’m really looking forward to, is seeing truly ancient relics; I think they were called ring-bolts back in the day as excavated from Grampians NP on display there as part of our infamous heritage.
It’d be great, and right up there with Ned Kelly memorabilia I reckon, especially now that we’re all enlightened climbers.

Well worth supporting it M9. The absolute highlight is Roland Pauligks workbench transplanted from its suburban home. A genuine piece of climbing history.

Does this mean that mikl's lycra tights are now collectors items?

They are a midden of filth and disease, but I do have some original povo 70 brand chalkbags, original RP nuts, and plastic hexes to donate.

Some of your old home made fixed gear should be in the museum.

Inertia seat belt on Belt Up is very faded but still swinging in the breeze at Hanging Rock!

Yes, who would have thought at the time that such a device, obviously deployed as having passed inertia reel prototype stage, would have been a forerunner in modified form for the top piece of protection in climbing gyms decades later!
Heh, heh, heh.

I think I have now largely found the information I was after, after googling about the museum and reading articles in the Wimmera Mail Times, plus Brigitte Muir’s blog.
... Just need to follow up the contacts gained to find out more about what they want / could use; not only hardware but publications etc, as there’s no reason it couldn’t be a substantial repository of climbing literature too, if the Historical Society wants to go in that direction.

I understand that Simey’s bed is in need of a new home

Another midden of filth and disease?
