A selected guide to local rockclimbs around Melbourne by Glenn Tempest. The guide is full colour, 156 pages and has been produced in a unique landscape format to better cope with single pitch routes which represent most of Melbourne’s local areas. Climbers will discover over 500 selected climb descriptions, 75 photo topos and accurate approach maps. The guide is wire-o-bound, has a heavy duty cover and comes with an elastic closure. (This reduced price reflects that the book has no elastic closure. Perfect copy otherwise).

The You Yangs (Urinal Wall, Royalty Walls, Gravel Pit Tor, Flinders Peak Slabs)
Falcons Lookout at Werribee Gorge
Mt Beckworth (The Main Group)
Camels Hump (Lower Cliff and Omega Block)
