Araps Anzac Day

Only posting this as its a bit quiet on chocky.

Did a day trip up to Araps Anzac day. Been 12 months since I broke my left fib and messed up the ankle badly in a poor landing bouldering. First time on rock since the accident.

Took a buddy up to Bushrangers for some easy trad. He is strictly a pebble wrestler and this was his first time on rope. We had a ball! 19c with a light breeze was pretty good, Araps rock is just special but the best thing was the other climbers.

I normally give Araps a wide berth around easter because of the crowds. Two weeks after easter the crowds are gone, the weathers great and its all fun but I'm glad I braved the madding crowd. Met some lovely people from all over Aus and overseas and everyone was having fun, the vibe was pretty awesome. Happy people all enjoying themselves and offering support and encouragement to others.

I was camping there on ANZAC Day - the foggy morning with the dawn bugle was pretty special.

Thanks for posting that salty crag.
It was edifying to read, and interesting too from the point of view being another persons perspective, compared to the relatively reclusive circles that my climbing consists of!

Your quick feedback style of TR inspired me to get my act together and finish off doing the last Aidfest report, but in the intervening time Iíve misplaced the notes I took and my computer got a virus with issues that havenít been fully resolved, so it is put off yet again...
