Easy alpine climbing areas at Mt Buffalo 27-Jul-2015 At 5:22:24 PM ldshield
Message
Can anyone recommend somewhere at Mount Buffalo suitable for basic mountaineering practice? I've done some basic alpine climbing with qualified instructors in NSW and NZ, and I'm ready to head out independently with my wife who's an experienced abseiler. I'm at the stage where I'm confident in my climbing skills but still cautious, and would like to practice somewhere relatively safe. We're looking for a short steep section of snow with a decent runout where she can have a go at abseiling on snow and I can practice setting up anchors and climbing. It's a while since I've been to Mount Buffalo; does anyone know of any areas that might be appropriate? I note that the southern side of The Hump towards Cresta Valley, and an area near The Horn have been mentioned, but I don't know if they'd be suitable for our purposes; any thoughts? Thank you!
