Mt Arapalies - The Pines Camp Area
Meet At: 1pm Arapiles
We are very excited to be running our first 2017 Climbing Trip to Arapiles!
Mount Arapiles is Australia’s premier climbing destination and has been regarded as world class for decades. This amazing climbing is just over the boarder in Victoria and will be less than a 5 hour drive from Adelaide uni.
This trip will be ideal for people with significant outdoor top-rope experience looking to explore a new area as well as new styles of climbing, including trad climbing. There are hundreds of climbs of all levels including climbs that are guaranteed to allow everyone to push their climbing limits.
As we only have a limited amount of climbing gear the places for this trip will be limited. However we understand that people may not be able to commit to the entire trip so we will be taking bookings by the day to allow several different groups of people to come and go as. In order to register for this trip their will be several different links appear for each day and you need to register for each day separately. In order for the maximum amount of people to come please only book in for the days you will be climbing. For example if you plan to leave early one morning and will not be climbing that day, there is no need to register through us for that day.
It is also important to remember to also book your camp site in the Pines camp ground, all details are on the following site: https://www.parkstay.vic.gov.au/book-your-stay/mount-arapiles-tooan-state-park/66328. Please note this is a separate booking from them Mountain Club, so to ensure your place is booked you have to do 2 things:
1) Please book your camp spot on the above link for each day you will be staying
2) Register for each day you will be climbing with us through this website (registration is now open)
We will not be catering for this event so please bring all the food you will need for the trip with you. The closest good store is Horsham and we can organise to go their if needed but best to have everything you need from the beginning.
The club will be providing top rope sets as well as one set of trad climbing gear. You are encouraged to bring any gear you have for your personal use. Due to the amount of gear the club will be providing, everyone will need to understand that you may not be able to trad climb every day and we will need to rotate between top-rope, trad climbing and bouldering, to ensure everyone has a turn. As well as this Mt Arapiles is a beautiful base to walk from or even bring your bike, we are sure their will be no shortage of activities to keep us busy!
