Find Climbers In Your Area

Scottish Climber looking for info July 6 - 12
7:44:06 PM
My wife and I are heading to Melbourne for a 3 week holiday and arrive on 5 July. I am getting excused from the shopping, gallery /sightseeing agenda for 4 or 5 days and am hoping to head up to Arapiles to see the place and if possible do some climbing. Aim to be there any time between 6 and 12 July. I will be limited in what I can carry with me but will take my own boots, chalk bag, harness and helmet. I am hoping to tie on with other climbers and also need info on somewhere to stay where I can meet other climbers. Is there a climber's bunkhouse in Natimuk. Mayhire a car in Melbourne unless someone else wants someone to share petrol costs?

I am 58 but quite fit and I climb up to E1/E2 UK or 6b/6c French sports grades and have been climbing, including Scottish Winter mountaineering, for 40 years. I'm not bad company and have never been labelled as 'boring'!

Any advice/suggestions appreciated.

My brother lives nearby and may be around. It is winter, so the pines will be far less busy than in the warmer months, but I would be surprised if you don't find someone to climb with!

Thanks Marty, will probably head up to Natimuk on Saturday 7 July and stay until the Wednesday or Thursday. If your brother or anyone else you know is keen to get out round about then, ask them to post a phone number. I will pick up a local SIM card for my own mobile when I get to Melbourne so don't have a number yet.

Message here for Michael, the guy with a broken leg. Thanks for getting back to me Michael. It was good info but the post seems to have disappeared! I read it in the van coming back from a climbing trip up Strathconnon but it has vamoosed!

Don't know how you got on. Sent you a PM with my contact details.

Could be lucky with the weather : showery in Natimuk today and looks like it will stay that way for the next couple of days but improving Sunday.
