MUMC beginners weekend at Mt Arapiles. I caught the first train from Glen Waverley on a Sat morning to meet up with Steve Howden and his girlfriend in the then uber-cool Fitzroy before being picked up by another beginner in his VW beetle.
We were shown how to make a harness out of seat-belt webbing since club harnesses were in short supply. We cranked up a few single pitches in Dunlop Volleys at Dec Crag, then got on to Trapeze and Swinging on Castle Crag on the Sunday. Got a lot of encouragement from the trip leaders, Steve, Craig Nottle and Roddy McKenzie and loved every minute of it.
I went back for a follow-up trip a few weeks later with my very own strip of seat-belt webbing!
