Rock Climbing Roundtable 3

On 3rd Dec 2019; the ACAV attended the RC Roundtable #3. Provided here are the official notes from the meeting.

Provided a brief update on the progress to date for environmental and cultural surveys – 96 sites assessed to date, at least 126 in total will be completed by March 2020. All SPAs have now been reviewed.
The roundtable’s input is appreciated to assist Parks Victoria to prioritise sites to be assessed. Initial observations will be presented today but it is important to note that there is no change to access, at this stage.

  1. My question. Why is it, that having spoken to climbers like me who have 30-40 years plus climbing experience, apart from Kevin his wife, are not the committee people. It seems acav has been hijacked by a bunch of newbies. Whom from my point, I’ve never heard of. It seems an ego trip for some newbies. I was talking to a guy yesterday, very well known climber buddy. Written many guidebooks and he like me are very disillusioned by what’s currently happening. Cut to the chase, get the job done for access and other sensitive issues. Looks like we’re going backwards. Step up legends and long term era. We need you
