Rap anchors not in the latest guide books

I'm after somewhere I can go to view recently added rap stations. I have all the main Victorian guidebooks but I would love to have access to rap stations added after these publications.

Hi Phil,

This won't cover all the areas but as we receive information we add it to our updates page on our website. For the Araps guide try here http://osp.com.au/?p=343
For Rockclimbs Around Melbourne try here http://osp.com.au/?p=1425

Cheers,

Tracey

ACA has quite a few updates like that.

The one that springs to mind is the rap anchor above Simpleton. It's a 60m rap rather than the 50m one with the awesome scramble. However, I could see someone mistaking it for the 50m one if they didn't know the 60m was there (ie they were working off the select guide). Is it worth attaching something to such anchors (like a dog tag) with the length engraved on it?

Definitely. Oddities such as this can catch people out.

Ha, dogtags, I left a note written on plastic with a texta on a rap anchor. It had faded to nothing in a month. I'd better get an engraver
