Hi, moved to the area earlier this year and don't know anyone in the area who climbs. I only started climbing early last year but really enjoy it and after a few trips to araps and Mt Buffalo this year i have come to the conclusion i can't give it up, so am looking for some other climbers in the area. I don't really lead yet but will second on trad or sport oh and i have a car. Please....anyone.... : )

Not sure how active this club is, but it may be worthwhile contacting the Border climbing club which is based in Albury.

thanx for the tip but i tried that site when i first moved here and unfortunately i think the border climbing club died a horrible death on mountain somewhere coz there ain't been any postings on it for about a year or more, however i might still try to contact some of the addresses from 2002. hmmm hope they still live here.

i was going to do a photography course at CSU in ALbury/Wadonga, but ended up avoiding it like the plague cause theres no surf, and as far as i know, no climbs...

There are probably about a dozen fairly serious climbers still in the Albury/Wodonga area. Age range is late teens through to older than me! (but who still can crank mid 20's). Climbing styles cover from bouldering through sport & trad to aiding.

The BCC morphed into the Border Chapter of the VCC (due to insurance reasons) but died a natural death of sorts about that time, due to key players taking their 'moving & shaking' overseas or into the institutional corridors of academia, or injury recovery, or parental / work responsibilities, or ...

I am from this area and have climbed with climbau after meeting him on this forum. Steve is correct; climbau is good to climb with.

... though I hear there is an offwidth up Buffalo just waiting to gobble mighty mouse for his comments.

If you want to risk being indoctrinated into the adventure and/or aiding mentality then email me offline.
If I try hard I may even be able to find a contact or two for sportclimbing & bouldering, though what they do is really only practise for the real thing!.

for distance measuring or travel directions you can't beat this site: http://www.travelmate.com.au/MapMaker/MapMaker.asp?TM_Page=mapmaker
and according to that site it is 116.1km which would take approx 1:36 hours ;-)

Bugger, ... wrong again ....

Distances are generally Post Office to Post Office.
There isn't really one at Buffalo, so how do they figure a distance down to a tenth of a km?

It takes me about 2 hours from my front door at Lavington to the Cathedral.

Hey Bec,

Mount Pilot is another close option, it's a little granite crag about 40mins from Wodonga (see Guide section), with some face, slab and crack climbing (The Bakery Wall is probably a nice place to start). When I'm not at uni in Melb I live about 5mins from Pilot which is nice :) I'll let you know if I'm back home these holidays, I'd been keen to meet a few of the local guys too. Ask around at the climbing shops up Dean Street In Albury, there's usually a few folks there that climb regularly.

Hope that helps.

Corey.

Corey,
Pretty much the only regular climbers working in any of the local gear shops these days are at Adventure Camping. Drop in and ask for Sparky.

Is this a shamless plug for that mob?
