Trip type: 
Climbing
Difficulty: 
Medium
Start date: 
Saturday, 16 November 2019 - 8:30am to Sunday, 17 November 2019 - 9:00pm

Previously the Mt Piddington trip but now changed to the orroral ridge/ Booroomba rocks climbing trip due to multiple complications.

The plan is to leave Canberra (from the ANU sports hall) on saturday morning  8:30 am. We will camp out at honeysuckle creek campground saturday night. Leave on sunday for Canberra.

Participants should bring their own helmet, harness, shoes and belay device w/ locking carabiner. Additionally, participants should also bring tents, sleeping bags, packs and enough water/food for 2 days. I will be hiring out ropes, draws and trad rack from the gear store. It will also help if some of the participants could bring a trad rack or two as well. This is not a beginner friendly climbing trip. So the only way beginners can come on this trip is that if an experienced climber agrees to partner with them and teach them. In saying that it would be ideal that all beginners who sign up for this trip know how to lead belay and tie in.

Spots are limited by the number of drivers who sign up. This trip can only go ahead if someone with a car signs up. If I've not climbed with you before please describe your experience when you sign up.

There won't be a pre-trip meeting, any extra details will be ironed out over Facebook chat.

Costs: 
fuel for drivers (approx 120 km round trip). individual gear hire cost. Costs for 2 days worth of food and water.
