If you are a complete beginner looking to get into outdoor climbing, this is the trip for you!!

We will be heading to wickerslack crag, to do some climbing. I will set up topropes for you guys on super duper easy routes! 

Note that you will need to have a belay pass to come on this trip. No other experience is required, however I would appreciate it if you could please briefly outline your experience level when you sign up, just for my own reference. Please let me know if you have a car and can drive when you sign up!! I don't have a car so this trip cannot go ahead unless one of you can drive!

Advanced climbers are welcome to sign up too!  If some more experienced people sign up, I could potentially open the trip up for more beginners. 

You will need: 

-a helmet 

-climbing shoes 

-harness ( please check that it fits you before hiring!!)

-sun protection:hat, sunscreen etc

-Water (I recommend minimum 1.5L) and food for the day

-A backpack to carry everything in

*** Note: you can hire climbing gear from our gear store (at ANU sport).  Opening hours: 6-6:30 pm on tuesdays and thursdays. 

I will hire belay devices for you guys (the Megajul). If you have your own, feel free to bring it. If you're a beginner, it's recommended that you use an assisted braking device such as the megajul.
