This is a selected guidebook describing the best rock climbing routes at Mount Arapiles, near the town of Natimuk in Victoria State, and only 300km from Melbourne. Mount Arapiles is a spectacular island of hard quartzite rock and often described as the best trad-climbing area in Australia. Few other areas can compete against Arapiles for the sheer quality, quantity and diversity of trad-climbing across all grades. The guidebook contains almost 1,300 single pitch and multi-pitch routes, as well as some bouldering.
At the start of each area there is a location map, and a general description of the climbing to be found, with all the routes shown on colour photo-topos. Spring and autumn are the best times to go climbing at Arapiles though it is possible to climb at any time of the year.
This is the 3rd edition of the guidebook, published in January 2016, which is in full colour, completely revised and updated.
