Indoor rock climbing
The AUMC climbs regularly at the Vertical Reality Climbing gym at Holden Hill. The AUMC climbing night is Tuesday evening, though members are also often there on Thursdays. VRC offers reduced climbing rates for AUMC members who are full-time students or staff at the University of Adelaide on this night. Show them your membership card and student/staff card and you will receive the AUMC member price of $12. The AUMC has a limited number of harnesses and climbing shoes which all members may use on a first-come, first-served basis. If there is no spare gear, please do not use the UniSA Rock Climbing Club’s gear unless you are a member of that club too. Other than that, loose fitting clothes, shorts and good tight shoes, are all you need.
On your first visit to the gym, you will need to do an introductory course ($5) that will teach you about safety and basic skills. You must ring the gym in advance on (08) 8266 4090 to book in for a course. If the gym is busy and you have not booked, you may not be able to climb.
There are normally a number of other AUMC members climbing at the gym on these nights, both experienced and new, so there should never be a problem finding people to climb with.
For more information please see Vertical Reality’s web site.
We’re now having regular weekly club bouldering nights at Adelaide’s Bouldering Club at 10 Ware Street, Thebarton. Come and join us on Mondays from around 6pm. Bring your AUMC membership card for discounted entry ($13). At this stage we won’t be bringing our club shoes so if you want to hire climbing shoes it’s an extra $3.
No pre-bookings are required and as there’s no ropework involved, you don’t need to worry about finding a partner.
If you are catching public transport, there’s a free tram from the city to Bonython Park tram stop, and it’s a 10-15 minute walk from the tram stop to ABC. Alternatively, catch the 286/287/288 bus from North Terrace to stop 5B and it’s only a 1-2 minute walk.
