I'll be arriving Thursday night with a bunch of people from Albury/Wodonga (3 of us on Thursday night, 2 on Fri arvo, 1 or 2 more on Fri night). We're leaving on Monday arvo.
I have a blue tent and my name is Stephen. My mate Larry has a white car and an Irish accent. bl@ke is also coming with us on the Thursday. Shouldn't be too hard to find us!

4 out of the 7 of us lead happily.

Hey guys.

I am coming also. New to the climbing but semi experienced abseiling. Have some gear generally abseiling gear and a 60m dynamic rope. I am a soldier in the army, in Melbourne on a course but need to get away for a great weekend in the mountains.

Leaving Friday night from Watsonia (not sure of exact time - depends on when we are released from course) - if anyone needs a ride then txt me 0422173693 email me james.katrina@iinet.net.au.

Where are the pines campground in relation to Centenary Park Campground, or are they the same thing.?

Cheers

James

Yeah true.. Slight technicality. I should have said "a spectacular feature consisting of quartzite, a metamorphic rock rising sharply from the Wimmera plains"

Must be a abseiler. Real climbers don't mix their drinks.

Hey all, was thinking about driving up from Melbourne Sunday night, climbing all Monday and driving back that evening. I have a fairly comprehensive rack, rope etc. Happy to lead (or follow) up anything inspiring up to maybe 20/21 ish. I'm also happy to offer a ride to anyone interested. Had a ball with Egosan on 'Skink' a couple of weeks ago. Gordoste.. you guys climbing all monday? ..room for one more?

I looked at dribble in the guide last night - let's go check out the bolts. 11 is about the max I'm happy leading so I'll be able to offer an opinion...Sounds a good route though and ** i do agree though quite vauge at the start. Let's do it. x

Yeah you should do it in the morning so you get to see the bolts in the best light......maybe even a few high res pics and a trip report about visiting the latest additions to Arapile...

Dribble is seeming to be an even more apt name for the route

Raph, jump on the bloody train to Horsham with a pack, boots, chalk, harness, goon (Ithink the french call it wine), sleeping bag and mat. (you'll notice the obvious dry illegal place to sleep for one night). Get off at Horsham and start walking with your thumb out (I think the french call this british). You will get a lift. You will have a good time. And you may make it home alive.
