28/12/2019Camels Hump Day Trip
Location: Camels Hump, Mt Macedon
Leader: Michael O'Reilly
Details: Xmas will be done and dusted so it's time for climbing. If you can't get away to the Gramps /Araps/Buffalo this weekend, why not take advantage of the coolness of Camels Hump in mid summer? Camels Hump offers the best climbing 'close' to Melbourne. It's about an hour from Melbourne if you're lucky enough to live north of the Yarra! We will be climbing routes on both the Lower Cliff and up on the Omega Block at Camels Hump. It is quite a user friendly crag in terms of the area at the base of the climbs and the ability to set up top-ropes on some, or most of the climbs. If you intend to lead, bring along a few bolt plates as some of the routes still have some carrots for protection. While the Omega Block is home to plenty of harder sport routes, it is also the home of Witch*, the first climb of that grade in Victoria. Come along and test yourself on this classic line. The Lower Cliff has a good range of intermediate climbs. Shade can usually be found, depending on the grades that you climb. If you are interested in joining the VCC on this trip, please contact the Trip Leader, Michael O'Reilly, to secure your place. Beginner numbers may be limited, depending on the number of experienced leaders who come along. All intending participants must contact Michael prior to the trip. [ More ]

End of the Month @ Araps/Djurite - January
Location: Mount Arapiles
Leader: Matt Brooks
Details: Mt Arapilesin the middle of summer? 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.   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.     [ More ]
