Declaration Crag, Mt Arapiles (thecrag.com)
There has been a re-discovery of rock art at Taylor’s Rock (Declaration Crag). Barengi Gadjin Land Council shared this news with the Rock Climbing Roundtable in advance of a public statement as a positive story of celebration and a demonstration of their faith in the climbing community to do the right thing.
They respectfully ask all users of the park (not just climbers) to abide by the restrictions being put in place at the site whilst they as a community decide what they would like to do with this discovery and the site for the future. As a climbing community we feel honoured by this gesture of faith and celebrate this amazing discovery.
Sport Climbing Victoria are enthusiastic about the potential this discovery holds to increase the value of a special place where climbing & cultural heritage can co-exist.
Congratulations Barengi Gadjin Land Council.
