Red Rocks Road closure – 5/5/14 – approx 2 weeks. Weirs Creek access.

Due to resurfacing works being undertaken on  Red Rocks Road, it will be closed for the next two weeks. Closure is from 5/5/14

For the duration of the works it will be okay for climbers to access the area by parking at the end of Andersons Road where it intersects with Red Rocks Road. This is the same area we used to access the cliffs after the Vic Range fires when the reopenings began. See below for details.

Most of the works will be concentrated between Matthews track and Muline Creek however they may extend south of Muline Creek to Andersons Road.

Note: Because of Matthews Track closure for the next two weeks, this means that the new access in for Weirs Creek is now not possible also.

It is due to heavy vehicles working in the area and because the road is impassable to the north, that people are being asked not to drive through the road works. So this does mean a longer walk in for some of the cliffs in that area.

TEMPORARY (Due to road closures)– From the Henty Highway, take Andersons Road. Follow this all the way through to where it intersects with Red Rock Road. Park up here on Andersons Road not Red Rock Rd. This is closed so please respect this closure even though it may seem super easy to just park on it or drive a little way down.
Red Rocks Pinnacles
Mt Fox
Hollywood Bowl
Turn left and walk a short distance (150m) to a sandy track on the right. This track leads you to all of the above climbing areas and is the permanent access track after the road closures finish. Follow this track for approximately 500m to the intersection. Turn right. Another 70m will get you to the Mt Fox track(cairned) and a further 450m along will get you to the access track to Red Rocks area.

NOTE: In the case of Red Rocks, this access is the new access approach that was established before the fire. Do not cross the paddock – this is private property and no longer allowed. https://cliffcare.org.au/grampians/victoria-range/red-rocks-creek-area/ (scroll down to page bottom on this link)

Muline
Emu Rock/Emu Cave
Muline and environs is as before (some track realignment) but will require a longer walk from Andersons road to get to the start of the access track.
