The third in a series of outdoors climbing trips on Thursdays. This time we'll be headng to Mount Alexandra in Mittagong (pending weather).

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 two hours to the area and climb into the afternoon.

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.
