Bagging Nowra.. 16-Jul-2014 At 6:12:48 PM shiltz
First went to Nowra in the 90's. Before that I'd never really been to a sport climbing venue. Learnt about threading the chains to lower off, belayed with a grigri for the first time and got accustomed to dogging, dangling and doinking.
Took the locals advice and didn't lock the car to avoid it being opened with a brick.
Stayed at the animal park with its discount for "rockies" as the owner called us.
Ate Aussie pizza, much the same quality as any country town then. Drank cheap beer and didn't care about the coffee.
Opened my eyes to how many climbs you could do in a day, many forgettable but many I still recall.
I've been back a bunch of times since and each time it seems to have mellowed a little bit more. Last time at TP about 5 years ago it almost had a real family picnic atmosphere.
