Araps Nov-dec?

I was informed recently that climbing at Araps early morning and late afternoon is best during this time of the year.

I was also wondering if anyone had any recommendations for shade chasing?

I'm only barely on 20's (18 and 19 are more comfortable), and I will prob's be seconding the routes we attempt anyway (unless they're POP routes...)

thanks.

Oh, yeah, invitations are open for anyone down there between 20/11 and 10/12 to give advice, chill with, or be a smartarse and free it past me while I'm struggling on the 3rd pitch of some 16 :P

well passion fingers you obviously have no idea, i will have to accompany you down to make sure you dont get lost...im an expert at remote train travel as any blackheath/lithgow/hartley memorial local will know! so ill get you to melbourne but thats where we will require some divine intervention from a melbourne local who will gratiously let us jump in their boot for the rid to horsham for supplies, then will drop us off 3 feet from our compsite at the pines. are there any heavenly beings out there?

deciphered version: we're going down to melbourne, by train if we can't sort out a lift, and were wondering if we could chip in petrol money for a lift to the pines?

Hey BF,

It can still be a bit cold at Araps in Nov/Dec, especially at night. Don't forget the beanie etc.

Enjoy yourself! (and ya grades will probably go up over the 3 weeks too)

Not to get off topic, but I will be at the Gramps 26-9 of Dec. Sould I look out for any particular (non-northern exposure) crags?

I'll be at Araps from about the 30th January next year, for something between 9 and 21 days (depending on a few things). Anyone going to be around then? I'll be teaching a friend of mine how to climb for a lot of that time, which means low grades and lots of beer, but it'd be good to have someone who can lead/follow up to about 22 in case he loses interest. :) (That said, I haven't climbed anything with wigglies in about two years, so my head might not be up to grades higher than my age, heh.)

Also, if anyone needs/wants a lift out from Melbourne on the 30th I can probably help you out. Not so sure about getting you back though.

Hey Al,
When I finish exams on mon 15th Nov, I'll have a few free days before I head back to Perth. I'm going to hang around Melbourne because I need to pack my stuff up but would be up for some daytripping around Melbourne if you can't find anyone to go to Araps with.

What your mum is really worried about is the fact that you might discover being a fulltime climber beats the shit out of a career.

Your biggest worry would being dragged off to have a shower 'cause you stink too much!

my mum has already come to accept the fact that i am destined to be a dirtbag climbing bum.
do they have showers at arapiles? maybe if we put a caravan park across the road???

Have a swim in the fire dam every month or so, you know when you really stink when the organic vegie guy offers you a free shower!!!!

Alternatively there's a campground just outside Horsham (heading out towards Stapylton campground) that let us swim in their pool and shower in their pristine amenities for about $3 a pop... That was in January 2003, might have changed.
