Vertical Reality Climbing
Organiser: Joel Williams
Meet At: Make your own way there, or meet at the Cloisters 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!
If you’ve climbed before but have been taking a break due to the heat, now’s your chance to get back into it. The AUMC is able to provide a limited number of harnesses and climbing shoes. Other than that, loose fitting clothes and good tight shoes are all you need. Spaces will be limited by transport and available gear.
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 Adelaide Uni will be available (please let us know if you’re able to help out) so preference will be given to those who register first. If you miss out on registration you’re still welcome to come along but you will need to make your own way there and you may need to rent a harness from the gym.
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. When you arrive, ask the staff to point out Joel from the AUMC to you.
Bookings are closed for this event.
