11/01/2015Black Hill Day Trip
Location: Black Hill, near Kyneton.
Leader: Dan Miller (The Secretary!)
Details: What better way than slab climbing is there to improve your footwork and technique after the mindless laps of Burnley not looking at your feet! Not that there's anything wrong with improving your endurance on jugs... it's just that it won't help you at Black Hill. Come along and learn some technique and how to use your 'sticky rubber'.
The first Club Trip for 2015 is a day trip to the granite climbing area of Black Hill, near Kyneton. Dan Millar is the Trip Leader. The Club Secretary plans to show participants the climbs in the two areas around Milawa (17*) and Barefoot and Pregnant (19*) in the Upper Area of the Northern Group. Both areas offer great slab climbing.
Check out the available routes on the online Guide theCrag.

NOTE: Only 12 participants. [ More ]
8/02/2015Camels Hump Day Trip
Location: Camels Hump, Mt Macedon
Leader: Hywel Rowlands
Details: The perfect February Day Trip for sun soaked Melbournians in need of a climbing fix. A great 'Summer Crag' with some shade possibilities and an easy walk in. The 1000m altitude also helps to lessen the heat of summer.
Climb routes on the lower cliff or head up the hill to the Omega Block and flex your muscles on the sport test pieces!
Climbs for everyone including cool chimneys, juggy aretes to thin and steep face climbs.
Suitable for Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced climbers.
Contact Hywel Rowlands, the Trip Leader, prior to the trip to secure your place.
Beginner places may be limited. [ More ]
