Post Basic Skills Day Candy Mountain - Sun 11/3/18

Mon Feb 19, 2018 1:27 pm

We're going to Candy Mountain Cliffhangers! It's time to put all those skills you learnt at the Basic Skills Day to good use, with some rockclimbing away from KP.

Image

This afternoon crag at Mt Tibrogargan is quite new, which only finished development just before christmas 2013, and is dominated by relatively easy sport routes. This crag is perfect for new climbers to come along and try out climbing away from Kangaroo Point. We'll also need as many leaders as possible to ensure this works! Mozzies own this crag, so a bath in insect repellent wouldn't go astray.

Meet at the lookout at Kangaroo Point at 8:45am for a 9:00am departure. We will be meeting at the climbers carpark for gear distribution. Transport allocations will be sent closer to the date.The guide can be found here, and I'd suggest looking at it, as I doubt there's many people that know area well.

The approach is described as, "From the climber's car park, follow the right hand branch of the trail around the base of the mountain. Follow the trail for about 15 minutes. You will pass a set of benches at a lookout and then walk up a set of stairs. At the top of the stairs there's a path leading up to the left. Follow this path for 50 meters or so and arrive at the base of the cliff."

Gear:
For this trip only, request the gear you need in your reply to this thread. If you don't own any climbing gear, request a "seconder kit" which includes everything you will need to climb on the day:
- a harness
- a helmet
- 2 x safety slings
- belay device
- prusik cords + biners
If you already own some of these items, only specify the individual items which you need to borrow. There are a limited number of seconder kits so be sure to get in quick.

Note that this method of requesting gear is an exception to the norm. For other trips, you will be required to request gear from one of our quartermasters.

Other essentials are lunch and plenty of water. Passengers, please give your driver $5 each way to contribute to fuel costs.
