Mittagong Beginner's Climbing Day Trip

Trip type: 
Climbing
Difficulty: 
Easy
Start date: 
Saturday, 16 February 2019 - 8:00am to 8:00pm

Outdoor climbing anybody? Rather than spending the day local, I was hoping to daytrip to Mt Alexandra near Mittagong. 

For your reading pleasure, here is the Guide from the crag (https://www.thecrag.com/climbing/australia/mt-alexandra). Simply, it offers a range of routes from low teens to mid twenties and adds a little variety for those feeling tired of the Canberra crags.

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. If anybody has access to a car as well that would also be great!

You will need (most can be hired from gear store): helmet, harness, belay device, locking carabiner, climbing shoes (optional but very useful!), appropriate clothing for weather, food and water for 1 day. When you sign up, please include your climbing experience (if any) and if you can bring a car.

This trip is dependent on someone registering with a car. I'll be going on to Sydney via train so won't be able to drive.

The plan is to meet at ANU gym at 8am on Saturday morning. We'll do a full day of climbing aiming to be back in Canberra by 8pm. There will be no pre-trip.

Costs: 
$75 per car + gear hire costs
Intended plan: 
Drive to Mt Alexandra. Climb. Go home. I will leave the group early and catch the train into Sydney.
Departure and intended return times: 
8am - 8pm
Local knowledge: 
I have been there a few times before.
