To mark end of exams I'm planning on a day trip to one of Canberra's local crags. Snake rock is a small but densely packed collection of boulders, with some excellent technical aretes and dihedrals, as well as a few mixed/trad lines. It is also a good choice of crag for people to learn to lead climb, as there are well bolted and extremely short climbs as low as grade 8.



  • Spots are limited by the number of car drivers who sign up. Spots will be allocated in order of signups, except for car drivers as necessary.
  • If I have not climbed with you before please describe your experience or I'll simply cancel your registration. Beginners are welcome, although I will have to ensure enough experienced climbers are also coming. Signing up is not a guarantee of coming.
  • Car drivers are needed: the drive is entirely on sealed roads.


We will meet at ANU sport in the morning to get into cars. There will be no pre-trip meeting; text or facebook message me if you have any questions.

Fuel for drivers (80 minute round trip).
Intended plan: 
Hike to crag, climb until midafternoon, hike out.
Local knowledge: 
The trip leader has been to the crag before.
