Unfamiliar with his things work on this site, so if this post is in the wrong place I apologise and I'm happy to be corrected.
I'm heading to do The Moai tomorrow and was wondering if anybody could tell me whether there is a reliable source of fresh water near the Bivouac Bay camp. I'm trying to decide whether I can just take my filter or I need to pack in my supply.
Thanks in advance and happy holidays.
The good news - Parks have re-surfaced the road into WWW, done a great job but... the bad news is that they have constructed seriously deep/high drainage channels across the road in many places, so big that even 4 wheel drives with high clearance are bottoming out. They will, I guess, become smaller with time as vehicles compact the gravel, erosion reduces height etc but at the moment, access by cars, vans etc is REALLY difficult if not impossible. The CCT and I think TCIA will take it up with Parks - would have been good to have been at least consulted or warned so we could spread the word!
If you are ever climbing somewhere and there isn't a topo of the area please take a photo (iPhone camera is good enough) and upload it here and i'll add it the the guide book.
Added a topo for Island Zawn today, if you haven't done Boris (a 1 star 18) it's worth the effort to go and do check out the topo here White Stack Area
If you are interested here is some dideo of a helicopter rescue on Cape Raoul

Here is a link to all the new routes done in Northern Tassie this year at crags such as North Sister, South Sister, Township Creek, Gilligans Creek, and the South Esk river. Of special interest may be the new sport crag at North Sister, which is worthy of a day or two of your attention if you are in the Fingal Valley and want an alternative to the more serious climbing at Bare Rock.
Could anyone deliver 4 boxes of guidebooks to Glenn Tempest in Natimuk for me..if yu are going on a trip to Araps soon? cheers
Just a quick note to say that the Falcons have successfully done their thing and the cliff is now open and ready to go.
Please remember to drive carefully on the private road section when approaching.
Hope you all have a great season ahead - stay safe!
