Advice sought - climbing around HG 15-Nov-2013 At 3:19:15 PM jrc
How serious are you about climbing i wonder? The first thing is to give yourself a full weekend rather than 2 half day trips. You leave Melbourne at 7 on Saturday morning, its light at 5 or soon after. That's when you should be pulling into the car park (or rolling out of the pit having driven there the night before).


Tip 1. Forget Booze nite Friday
Tip 2: Camp in the open that way you'll wake with the birdies
Tip 3: Get up & Climb
Tip 4: Go to a crag

Climb as much as you can Saturday and get back to camp at dusk. You can cook in the dark can't you ? It doesnt have to be gourmet. Keep off the coffee Sat night it'll stop you sleeping.

Sunday wake at 5 & climb as late as you can whilst still beign able to drive home safely. At least you have the sun setting behind you when you are going east.

Tip 4: wash face & hands & feet before driving
Tip 5: ensure you can both drive & swing the sharp end
Tip 6: dont stop for a 2 h dinner have a burger somewhere
Tip 7: get a car with lights
Tip 8: make sure the lights work & you;ve got a spare

This all worked in the 70s, dont knwo why its so hard to work out today.

Drive ho
