|Description:||This complex area has emerged from obscurity and now contains a wealth of quality sport, semi-sport and trad routes.With easy access and a good variety of grades this crag is destined for popularity. The three dimensional nature of the area means you can climb in the shade all day long or be protected from light rain. The big boulder caves also offer great exploration and have the habit of eating loose shoes or ï¿½biners. Routes have a mixture of old school hangerless machine bolts and newer ringbolts and fixed hangers. A basic trad rack is required on some of these climbs.|
|Location:||12 minutes mostly flat walk.
Park on Red Rock Road immediately opposite the large pinnacle with distinctive steep orange west face about 1km south of Mt Fox carpark (refer to Grampians Select guide by Tempest/Mentz). Hop over the fence and stroll across the paddocks and enter some light scrub (hopefully spotting the local emus and grey kangaroos). The first big boulder with a couple of rusty hangers on the west face is Pellant Pinnacle.
