Day trip at Gibraltar

Trip type: 
Start date: 
Saturday, 3 October 2020 - 8:00am to 6:00pm

NB: This trip needs a car driver signing up to go ahead. If there is a waiting list, priority will be given to a driver.

I'm thinking of an easy trip to Gibraltar Peak for some thesis-writing destress - a nice hike, moderate trad, good views (see

Plan is for a party of 2-4 although it will depend on how many car drivers and experienced climbers sign up.

This would be a good trip to get into trad climbing for someone with at minimum: experience climbing outdoors, ability to climb mid-high teen grades, lead belay, and rappel.

Participants will need: harness, shoes, helmet, and a tube-style belay device with locking carabiner.

If I have not climbed with you before please describe your experience when you sign up - if you do not, I will cancel your registration.

Please also tell me if you will be taking a phone with the COVIDSafe app installed.

$10 fuel for drivers (50 minute drive)
