A place for Victorian climbers to hang out and chat about climbing. Anyone can register and post messages.
18 in the last week.
|End of the Month @ Araps/Djurite - May|
Location: Mount Arapiles
Leader: Peter Upton
Details: Mt Arapilesin very late autumn? Late autumn usually provides great conditions for climbing at Arapiles. Enjoy the cooler temperatures and fantastic friction. Get up (reasonably) early to enjoy a full day's climbing. The warmer sun's rays in the morning on the nearby classicsand well-worn trade routes in the Organ Pipes can be stunning in May. Maybe explore some new areas. The famous walls and prominent buttresses of Arapiles really come into their own at this time of the year. In fine weather climbs on the Watchtower Faces are a great day out.
We will be camping in The Pines, close to the action. There is no better rock to fondle than the hard quartzite of Arapiles, so contact your Trip Leader, Peter Upton, to register your interest.
These EOM@Araps/Djurite trips are intended for all levels of climbers, however Beginner spaces will be limited by the number of experienced leaders who come along. It is recommended that Beginners contact the Trip Leader as soon as possible.
All intending participants must contact the trip leader prior to the trip. Please send through some details about your experience and climbing gear and hopefully we'll see you there.

|Winter Camp 2019 - Mt Feathertop|
Location: Mt Feathertop
Leader: Philipp Hammes
Details: This year Game of Thrones will be back and we'll be back at Mt Feathertop. Together with the New Zealand Alpine Club we'll rock the Backcountry Event you really don't want to miss!
Youve done some rock-climbing and want to step it up? Youre thinking about doing a Technical Mountaineering Course? You want to climb the Himalayas? You're a seasoned mountaineer and just want to enjoy a great weekend in the snow? This is EXACTLY the right trip for you.
Hopefully you can join us hiking up Bungalow Spur, or across the Razorback (whatever ticks your fancy), and meet at Federation Hut for a fluffy snow camp. There you have the choice between:
Just enjoying winter wonderland and cooking some snow OR
Joining the mountaineers and practising self-arrest, building a Swiss pulley system and doing other weird things. For this option youll need an ice-axe, crampons and a climbing helmet at a bare minimum.
If you havent attended a previous VCC Mountaineering trip or Winter Camp, there will be a mandatory mid-week briefing in Melbourne prior to the trip.
This trip is suitable for all levels of experience, with limited spaces for beginners. The trip leaders - Anna, Matt, Petey and Philipp - have done all kinds of crazy stuff and some of them are also Alpine SAR Victoria members. You will be in safe hands.
If you're new to snow-camping, please get in touch with us. There are a lot of things to consider which we will address at the briefing, however it doesn't hurt to get a heads-up on the gear requirements.
More details regarding theMountaineering Season 2019 will be released once were done with the planning. Feel free to email us any questions in the meantime
Winter is coming.
