Attendees to the Grampians Bouldering Festival can sign up for a one of our clinics held across the day Sunday 22 October. Spaces in clinics are strictly limited and it is first-come-first-served, some clinics require a minimal level of bouldering experience.
Clinics will start at different times depending on location and type. Exact starting times will be supplied closer to the event. Some clinics, the advertised area they are held in or the format may change change subject to consultation with and at the instruction of Parks Victoria.
For those not attending a clinic, there is loads to do; you can join a big group boulder session, get a first look at our Font-style circuits at Andos or you can be the boss of you and head to your current project.

We are hosting a bunch of special clinics for women only. Join up with crushers including Claire Langmore, Amanda Watts and Amy Fenton for these special clinics. #girlsrule.
Amanda has stood atop the podium at Boulder Nationals, represented Oz in climbing World Cu and for 23 years has climbed all around the world in a life dedicated to moving over rock. Now she helps women work out what their goals are and how to train their bodies and minds to achieve them.
Claire was crowned Australian National Bouldering Champion in 2014 and has represented Oz on the biggest competitive stage, the World Cup circuit. Her knowledge of climbing and the athletic body is supported by her profession as a physiotherapist.
Amy is a stone-cold crusher, having bouldered V12/13, making her the first women to climb that grade. Having worked in a gym she has a keen eye for technique flaws, which she will bring to bear in her clinic.
