This is day two of the climbing weekend. If you are not joining the Mittagong climb on Saturday please meet us at Wingello State Forest Campground at 9.30am. Signing up does not mean your spot is guaranteed. The numbers of beginner climbers will depend on numbers of intermediate/advanced climbers. I will send out a confirmation email a week before the trip.

Here is the guide from the Crag https://www.thecrag.com/climbing/australia/wingello/gulp-road. It is about 1.5hr drive from Canberra.

You will need (most can be hired from gear store): helmet, harness, belay device (megajul/ ATC/ GriGri), locking carabiner, climbing shoes, appropriate clothing for weather, food and water for 1 day.

When you sign up, please include

-your climbing experience 
-if you can bring a car
-your expectation out of this trip (e.g. send a project, learn to lead etc.)

No pre-trip meeting but there's recommended pre-trip homework: 
-Partner safety check
-Tying into the rope
-Voice Commands
-Belaying with a Megajul

Some more advanced skills:
-Leading (clipping quickdraws)
-Lead belaying
-Cleaning a sport anchor

 

Costs: 
$70 per car + gear hire cost

Drive from campground to the crag at 9am. Arrive Canberra around 8pm. Probably a dinner on the way home.
