Mt Rosea and Bundaleer – Gariwerd/Central Grampians

Grampians National Park 2 Dec 2023 — 3 Dec 2023

Mt Rosea and Bundaleer are some of the classic trad cliffs of Victorian climbing. The plan is to climb at Mt Rosea on Saturday and at Bundaleer on Sunday.

Trip Leader Robert Bannwart

Mt Rosea offers some fantastic multipitch climbing on or just below vertical rock. The main cliff is about 90-120 metres high and has a uniform steepness that makes climbing quite sustained. To enjoy leading at Rosea you should comfortably lead grade 13-14 and the cliff really shines for those climbs between grades 15-22. Some of the classics are: Debutante (15), Heretic (17), Diane (18), The Ascension (21).

Bundaleer provides some really stunning and atmospheric climbing from grade 12 and up. Climb some of the classic multipitch climbs on superb rock, such as Scarab (12), ‘The Minch’ (12), ‘The Frog (16), Basilisk (16), Odysseus (17), Gerontian (17) and many more…
