A Short Walk In The Grampians #4

Soon we are deep into the Wilderness...rugged ancient sandstone mountains, with sheer red cliffs. The vegetation is mainly stunted Eucalypts of several species, and native Pines.

 

There are many marked climbing routes along this escarpment, and some that have been attempted many times but still not successfully climbed.

 

Already the track is faint or invisible. Ben says were are going to climb to the plateau at the top of the cliffs, and he is confident he will find the way.

J'aime beaucoup les différentes couleurs de la roche sur la première photo.
Ray: C'est le rouge typique du grand intérieur australien, Martine.
These are just beautiful! I can't get over how very much like Arizona everything about this landscape is! I've no doubt Ben will find the way!
Ray: I believe you will see these similarities quite frequently, Elizabeth.

a gorgeous rockscape! And how wonderful are all the colours!
Ray: This is the colour of Australia's great interior, Philine.

Life on the wild side, well you obviously survived..
Ray: Hmmmm...we are not at the end yet, Chris...the dreaded final reel catches many of us...

I can just picture you free climbing up that, perhaps with one hand in you pocket. I like the wonderful colours in the rock.
Ray: It is a lovely place, Alan. The previous day I was climbing on a very high cliff near to this...attached by rope to Ben I must add.

Like Elizabeth, I was thinking of spots very similar to this that I've seen in the US (but not in the UK).
Ray: There have been occasions when I have remarked on a post of Elizabeth's site that her pic reminds me of places I know in Australia...I am not surprised she is reacting in a similar way, Alan.
This is magnificent scenery Ray, those red rocks must be a Geologists delight.
Ray: This is the southern end of Australia's longest mountain range, Brian...it is more than 2000 kilometres long, and is full of interesting places.
Fantastic colour. Is this iron?
Ray: Heavy iron content here, Bill.
Ohh, my kind of country, Ray, nice.
Ray: I like it, too, Frank.
Elizabeth;s term of varnishing looks to be in play with this cliff.
Ray: I believe that is so, Mary.
Well, it's good to know you got back, Ray! smile
Ray: Death still eludes me, Tom...I have pretty good record in that. smile
