|Need partner, August 27-Sep 3
My name is Thomas Gappmayer, and I'm an American university student who is trying to get into the Arapiles to climb for a week or so. I fly into Melbourne from Sydney on the 26th of August, and I was planning on catching a train/bus to get into Natimuk. I'd love to find a partner (or a few) for that week, and I should have all my own gear (rope, stoppers, and cams to #2 BD size)
As an American.. your Aussie grades confuse me :). I think that I lead trad to 20-21 or so, and sport a little higher (In YDS, I climb 5.10 trad and 5.11+ sport..if that makes sense to you all).
If I could catch a ride up, I would be absolutely thrilled. I can pitch in for gas (petrol?) Otherwise, I'd love to meet people there.
Please email me directly. I'm at:
And as an incentive.. I can probably pick up some basic small pieces of American gear that are hard-to-find for any of you Aussies who want to climb with a Yankee.
Any ideas on how to get from Avalon to civilisation or just straight to Araps for Thomas?.( who flies into Avalon?!)
There has to be a bus to Melbourne but struggling to find it on line - anyone got the know how.
Look forward to climbing with you Thomas x
Well Thomas could either to go to Melbourne or Geelong from Avalon.
Once he gets to Melbourne he could follow: http://www.chockstone.org/Forum/Forum.asp?Action=DisplayTopic&ForumID=3&MessageID=11121&Replies=0&PagePos=0&Sort=#newpost
If he goes to Geelong he could bus to Ballarat and get to Horsham / Nati from there.
