|End of the Month @ Araps/Djurite - January Long W/End|
Location: Mount Arapiles
Leader: Matt Brooks
Mt Arapilesin the middle of summer? A long weekend at Arapiles? Arapiles in late January can provide some excellent climbing. Enjoy the cooler and shady gullies or the routes on the left side of Central Gully. Get up early and enjoy the sun's rays on the nearby classicsand well-worn trade routes in the Organ Pipes. Maybe explore some new areas. All those famous walls and prominent buttresses of Arapiles have shady gullies nearby! These gullies sometimes have cool breezes emanating from the 'bowels of Araps'.
Certainly plan to have a rest in the shade in the middle of the day! Then when the sun has disappeared over the back of the Mount, head out for a late evening climb in the shade. With a 3 day long weekend, you've plenty of time so you can rest in the heat and still gets lots of climbing done.
These EOM@Araps/Djurite trips are intended for all levels of climbers, however Beginner spaces may be limited by the number of experienced leaders who come along. It is recommended that Beginners contact the Trip Leader as soon as possible to secure their place.
All intending participants must contact the trip leader prior to the trip. Please send through some details about your experience and climbing gear and hopefully we'll see you there.
