Find Climbers In Your Area

Hobart - 21 to 24 March 2003

9:54:57 AM
I'm going to Hobart in March thanks to discounted Virgin Blue tickets.

Anybody know of any good climbing in the area? I'll hire a car so we can get off the beaten track, so to speak.

If there are any climbers in the area on this forum please make yourself known.

D'oh, I've just noticed the other topic about "tasmanian climbers".

Still, if anyone has anything to add - please do.

ill be back in lonnie around the 6th of feb .... but not staying that long.......

check out the latest rock for some sea level traverse stuf, also get a guide called craglets... it has all the info youll need on the whole of tassie. i think youll be surprised at just how much rock tassie has to offer..

craglets? I'll see if I can find it.

Unfortunately, I only have a few days so I won't get to try that much.

Thanks for the tips.

If youve only got a couple of days, and your based around Hobart then the organ pipes on Mt Wellington are your best bet. They are 15 minutes drive from the centre of town and offer good crack and face climbing between grade 14 and 20 (there are also some harder bolted climbs).

If your keen to get out of the city, try the Freycinet Peninsula (Coles Bay) on the east coast about 2 hours north of Hobart. Its a stunning granite peninsula that has great climbing and walking. The climbers campsite on Whitewater wall is probably the only place in Tassie where you can be pretty sure of meeting other climbers. You need a guidebook though, and its currently out of print.

As an indication, I recon if it was possible id have Victoria trade Mt Buffalo and Wilsons Prom to Tasmania, in return for the Freycinet Peninsula. Id even throw in the You Yangs and Cape Woolami to sweeten the deal!

Perhaps we could do everyone a favour and dump the Youies in Bass Strait instead!

Seriously though - Thanks Oweng for letting us use your extensive collection of Tasmanian climbing guides. Should be dropping round for the 'collection' tonight.
