Mt Arapalies - The Pines Camp Area
Meet At: The pines campground
Mount Arapiles is Australia’s premier climbing destination and has been regarded as world class for decades. This amazing climbing is just over the border in Victoria and will be less than a 5-hour drive from Adelaide Uni.
This trip will be ideal for people with significant climbing experience but will also cater to people interested in climbing trad for the first time. Climbers without much or any trad experience should also book in for the preparation trip the Saturday before (7th Oct). There are hundreds of climbs of all levels at mt Arapiles 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. Also not being able to stay the entire duration of the trip is not a problem. Feel free to come for as long or short a time as you like.
It is also important to remember to also book your campsite in the Pines campground, 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 with us below and also please email Andreas with the dates you’re planning on coming so we can bring the correct gear for you
We will not be catering for this event so please bring all the food you will need for the trip with you. The closest supermarket is in Horsham and we can organise to go there 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 there will be no shortage of activities to keep us busy!
Any questions please direct to the organiser of this trip at firstname.lastname@example.org
This event is fully booked.
