Northern Grampians and Arapiles Climbing

A magical part of the world in Victoria, Australia.

Here I learned to lead climb, fall and confront some of my biggest fears.

Starting as a gym climber, going outdoors with experienced climbers was humbling.

Relationship that begin with holding each others life on a thin rope can go a long way. I found a community that cares for the nature as much as they care for themselves by prioritising safety and low environmental impact.

There is also plenty of boulders which can give one a taste and feel of what climbers say is the best rock in the world.
