Victoria is also a stronghold of rock climbing in Australia, and one of its most important mountaineering centres is the tiny settlement of Natimuk, near Mount Arapiles. The mountain itself is made of solid Sand-stone rising up to 656 feet high and offers excellent climbs of all standards, ranging from relatively easy ascents to the most difficult in the country. Mount Arapiles is rivaled for the quality of its climbing by the Grampians. A favorite route here among hard-core climbers is Mount Stapylton, but it is just one of dozens of challenging climbs. The dramatic granite bluffs and slabs of Wilsons Promontory are also popular, but the principal granite climbing area in the state is the Mount Buffalo plateau. Dotted with enormous outcrops, it is also the site of spectacular Buffalo Gorge, whose North Wall measures 853 feet and is one of Victoria’s major climbing attractions.
