Organiser: Michael Demasi
Meet At: Adelaide Uni Cloisters
Cost: $5


On Sunday we will be heading down to Onkaparinga National Park for a day of rock climbing.

This event is suitable for both beginner and experienced rock climbers, and climbers who have been indoors but wish to try climbing on real rock. To participate you must be a member of the AUMC, and should have at least some previous climbing experience (for instance indoors at Vertical Reality) and be comfortable with belaying and tying in.

When registering for this event, please indicate whether you have your own harness and climbing shoes, or will need to borrow club equipment. Also indicate if you have your own transport, whether you have room to give other people a lift, or you require transport. Please meet at the Adelaide University cloisters at 9:30am, from where it will be about a 40 minute drive South. The climbing area is located within Onkaparinga National Park.

On the day, please wear comfortable clothes you can move easily in, bring plenty of water, sun protection, and food for lunch plus snacks. Also bring warm clothes in case the temperature drops later in the day, and a pair of thongs to wear in between climbs.

If you are experienced with setting up top ropes and are happy to help out, please let me know in the comment field! The size of the trip will be limited by transport and the amount of equipment we have.


Bookings are closed for this event.
