Vertical Reality Climbing
Organiser: Joel Williams
Meet At: Make your own way there, or meet outside Target at 17:15
Admit it – you’ve always wanted to climb up things. So come and try rock climbing at the Vertical Reality Climbing indoor climbing gym in Holden Hill!
If this is your first visit to Vertical Reality Climbing then it is essential that you contact them beforehand to organise a belay induction course for your first visit, even if you have climbed before. This induction course is necessary for you to belay at the gym, and teaches you skills essential for outdoor climbing. If you do not contact them prior to your first visit, there can be no guarantee that you will be able to do the belay induction course on the night you turn up, so booking is essential! We will aim to get there for the 6pm course.
The AUMC is able to provide a limited number of harnesses and climbing shoes (if you register late, you may need to hire from the gym). Other than that, loose fitting clothes and good tight shoes are all you need.
Don’t worry if you don’t have anyone to climb with – we’ll be able to match you up with someone. Limited transport from the city will be available (please let us know if you’re able to help out) so preference will be given to those who register first. It’s also straightforward to get to the gym by bus.
To organise an belay induction course ($5), please contact the gym directly: Vertical Reality Climbing, 12/560 North East Rd, HOLDEN HILL 5088, Tel. (08) 8266 4090. You must bring both your AUMC membership card and student card to receive the discount rate. If you’re making your own way there, ask the staff to point out Joel from the AUMC to you.
NOTE: There is currently no space available in my car. If you register you may need to make your own way to the gym.
This event is fully booked.
