This area is locked for editing by the parent crag. Route additions are allowed.
Description: One of the more popular recent Grampians developments. This is a large cave high up in the valley with an easy flat walk-in. This area features short and very steep sport routes on coarse orange rock. A large viewing area makes this a fun place to hang out with a bunch of mates and watch the sun set whilst cranking some of the sweet routes. Be very careful on the access traverse into the cave. In wet weather it is advised to rope up for the climb in and exit by absieling back out of the cave.
Location: 36.55.900s, 142.23.372e From the Mt Stapylton Campground aboriginal shelter carpark (Cave of Ghosts) walk south east following the east side of a vegetated creek. A few minutes into the walk you will pass an isolated pillar of rock ‘Castle Crag’ with a few ok trad routes on it. Keep following the creek, walking along nice kangaroo grass and ferns for ten minutes until you can see a red cave above some large walls up and to the left. Try and locate some rock cairns and follow these up a gentle hill. Follow left branch of ‘creek’ up small rock gully on the left side of the cave until you can traverse directly right across exposed rock to get into the cave. Two RB’s are positioned along this traverse to use as an anchor to belay people who may be scared of the traverse. It can also be used to abseil out of the cave when the traverse is wet from rain. Late afternoon sun in summer. Full sun from midday in winter.
