Climbing at Mt Alexandra

Trip type: 
Climbing
Difficulty: 
Easy
Start date: 
Saturday, 1 December 2018 - 8:00am to 8:00pm

The plan is to go to Mt Alexandra (just outside of Mittagong) and sports climb. There are good number of routes graded from <10 to >20, so there is probably enough for most people to do in one day. 

There are no real costs involved other than petrol. It is about a 2hr drive to Mittagong, so it'll be about $75 per car, split evenly. There is space for some beginners on this trip, although final numbers will have to reflect a ratio between beginner and experienced sign ups, so some beginners may unfortunately miss out. 

You will need (most can be hired from gear store): helmet, harness, belay device, locking carabiner, climbing shoes, walking shoes, food and water (it might be hot, so bring lots!) for 1 day.  When you sign up, please include your climbing experience (if any) and if you can bring a car.
