Nth Gramps work bees/reopening update Sept 2014

HI All,

The reopening of some of the climbing sites in the Northern Grampians is getting closer with September school holidays looking like the date for a few of them. Contractors have been working on many of the tracks especially in the Summerday Valley region with work on the Stapylton area also starting. It is now time for the climbing community volunteers to pitch in helping to clear and rehab the old tracks, harden and stabilize some of the climbing belay areas as well as some light stonework around the Bark Wall/Summerday area.

I have a couple of dates set for August in which we would like to do the majority of the work and I am wanting some more volunteers. Please drop me a line as soon as possible with your availability. I need to know numbers so I can organize catering

Thursday 21st August. Stapylton area. Meeting at Mt Zero carpark at 9 am. Please wear closed toe boots. Bring water. Food and snacks will be provided for all volunteers

Saturday 23rd August. Summerday Valley and Bark Wall area. Meeting at Hollow Mountain carpark at 9am. Please wear closed toe boots. Bring water. Food and snacks will be provided for all volunteers.

For those who might be looking for a climbing partner, the VCC will be running a Climb and Repair trip on the Saturday that includes the working bee. You are more than welcome to join that - just register your interest for the trip with the trip leader. See here

Camping will be at the Plantation campground and no fees will be incurred. As noted, food and snacks will be provided on the work days for all volunteers.

HI All,
