Outdoor Thursdays 2: Electric Boogaloo (Lost Vegas Edition)

Trip type: 
Climbing
Difficulty: 
Medium
Costs: 
Fuel contributions for drivers
Start date: 
Thursday, 21 April 2022 - 8:00am

Based high levels of expressed interest for our last Thursday outdoor climbing trip, I'll be putting up weekly Thursday trips, starting with this one. We'll be visiting the Lost vegas climbing area.  

This trip assumes participants have some experience in outdoor sport/lead climbing. That being said, we may have room for one or two newer climbers, subject to our discretion/the ratio of experienced to unexperienced climbers. If you're unsure about what this all entails, chuck me a message.

Plan:

Leave ANU sport at 8am on Thursday, drive an hour to the area and climb into the afternoon. We will park at the top of Blue Range Road (-35.2863,148.8524). The approach is about thirty minutes, so be prepared for some scree scrambling.

Pre-Departure:

Due to time constraints/regularity, there will be no pre-trip meeting. Because of this, anyone attending will have to make sure they have access to the following (whether hired from the gear store beforehand or personally owned): 

  • Helmet
  • Harness
  • Climbing Shoes (If you know your shoe size before hand it will really help)
  • Personal Safety Sling

That being said, let me know if you have issues accessing gear.

What to bring:

  • Approx 1.5L of water
  • Snacks
  • Warm layers
  • Hat + Sunscreen
  • Climbing Chalk (if you have any)
  • Your brightest smile

Sign up:

Please indicate your level of experience and which gear you'll need to hire when signing up. Also let us know if you have a car, as this trip is dependent on getting enough drivers.

In line with our covid-safe policy: do not attend if you're feeling unwell, have flu-like symptoms, have traveled internationally or been exposed to someone with COVID-19.
