Track: Moderate to Hard and Steep Suits the fit and athletic.
Explore the breathtaking beauty of massive sandstone outcrops and eucalypt-covered slopes of the northern Grampians. I wonder if country internet will ever improve enough that we could get anything aside from satelliteweb hosting service this far out of the town. It would be fun to sit outside with views like this and be able to blog about it immediately.
After leaving the picnic area, the track enters a densely vegetated gully and climbs through pleasant woodlands of banksias, eucalypts and native pines. From the base of an iron-stained sandstone cliff, climb between fallen boulders and along exposed ledges to a barren rocky outcrop.
A short uphill scramble completes the climb to the mountain’s wind-eroded caverns. From the upper end of the caves a natural rock window leads onto a ledge perched high above the huge amphitheatre where you can take in a breathtaking view of the forbidding cliffs of nearby Mount Stapylton before returning by the same route.
