Organiser: Michael, Jayde
Meet At: Lawn outside AU sports
Cost: Shared fuel cost


First AUMC trip to Araps for the year to build our trad climbing skills on the best crags in Australia!

This trip is for anyone who is a confident climber and has had some practice belaying and particularly belaying lead climbers in both sport and trad climbing. There will be opportunities to do multi-pitch climbs of over 100 metres but also plenty of single pitch and top rope climbs of all grades for anyone who just wants to come along to experience the high quality rock that Araps has to offer.

Members with lead climbing ability are highly encouraged to join and share their skills.

As we only have a limited amount of climbing gear and leaders to set gear so the places for this trip will be limited.

We will leave together on Friday at 6 from the Uni and arrive back there not-too-late on Sunday night.

We will camp at The Pines campground only a short walk from the main crags. Please bring all your own camping gear including tent, sleeping-bag, mat (which can be hired from the club) as well as warm clothes because it can get cold at night.  The campsite has water and toilets. Unfortunately fire ban season is still in place until the end of April so we can’t have campfires.

Please bring all the food you will need for the trip with you from the beginning. Two lunches, two breakfasts, a simple dinner for the Friday night and plenty of snacks. I will cook up a big curry to share on the Saturday night. Bring beer or other drinks if you want some for Saturday night.

Please bring any climbing gear you may own and the rest will be provided by the club. When you register please make a comment on what gear you need to borrow from the club and what size climbing shoes you take.

For transport we will organise carpooling from the uni its about four and a half hours drive. Fuel costs will be shared equally. If you’d like to join for just some of the time and drive yourself there, please let me know.
