Before the scorching heat of summer melts your boulder ambitions away, join for a day trip to Pierce's Creek North Cohiba area. If that is not enough for you, how does scouting a possible Deep Water Solo (DWS) spot sound?

We'll be aiming to leave ANU sport by 7:00am and be back by 7:00pm. 

Note:

- Spaces will be dependent on number of cars

- Trip may be canceled due to bad weather

-Outdoor bouldering experience is desired. Depending on numbers, there might space for 1-2 beginners.

-Deep Water Solo involves falling into deep water as the fall safety, swimming is required.

What you will need:

  • Climbing shoes (hirable from the gear store)
  • Hiking shoes
  • Swimsuit or second set of clothes
  • Chalk
  • Water and food for a day (Plenty of each would be wise)

While we will be hiring bouldering mats from the gear store; more pads means more climbing, so bring your own gear if you can.

Costs: 
10-20
Intended plan: 
The plan is to boulder most of the day at North Cohiba and then explore what Watt's Wall might have to offer as a refreshing DWS spot.

Departure 07.00am; Return 07.00pm
Local knowledge: 
I have been to other Pierce's Creek boulder areas before.
