O’week Come-and-Try - Outdoor Climbing - Have a Crack at Wickerslack

Trip type: 
Fuel money for drivers (minimal)
Start date: 
Friday, 19 February 2021 - 8:00am to 4:30pm

Welcome all to O'Week and the ANUMC!

Have you been spending a bit too much to much time on the ground recently? Are you sick of the big smoke already and looking for an excuse to neglect your studies? Then why not give some outdoor climbing a go this Friday!

Ashley and I are planning on heading out to Wickerslack Crag this Friday to show a lucky few people the ropes (so to speak) of this exciting sport!

We will be setting up some top-ropes and belaying so there is no prior climbing experience required to come along and anyone is more than welcome.

The Plan:

We will meet out the front of ANU Sport at 8:00am, and try to depart as soon as possible to get to the Crag parking at approx 8:30. There is a 15 minute walk to Wickerslack after which we will spend the day climbing. We will aim to be packed and ready to leave at 3:45pm to get back to ANU Sport by roughly 4:30pm. If people are tired/finished before this we can pack up and leave earlier :)

If you wanted more information on where we will be climbing and some of the routes there please visit thecrag.com: https://www.thecrag.com/climbing/australia/river-crags/wickerslack-crag


There will be no pre-trip meeting for this event. I have hired enough Helmets and Harnesses for everyone. However you must own your own pair of climbing shoes as we will not be able to source these for you.

Please feel free to bring your own gear if you have any!

What to bring:

  • Approx 1.5L of water
  • Food for lunch and snacks
  • Warm layers
  • Hat + Sunscreen
  • Climbing Chalk (if you have any)
  • A positive attitude
  • The ability to unnecessarily dyno
