EASTER: Point Perpendicular and Nowra Trip 3 Apr 2015 to 12 Apr 2015 Top
Location:
Nowra, NSW
Hywel Rowlands

 
Details:
Point Perpendicular beckons a return with its chiselled white cliffs framed by its wild ocean below. It’s a bona fide high sea drama settled amongst a military bomb testing reserve.
The trip will also present the opportunity to visit the sport cliffs at Nowra, particularly if Point Perpendicular is closed due to military activities.

The trip will look to hire a house which is comparable in cost to nearby camping, will do away with the need for camping equipment, ensure comfort in the case of wet weather conditions, and will provide an opportunity to have 3-4 persons per car sharing travel costs.
Accommodation at the house will be limited (8-10 persons), cost will be divided by occupants for the trip period (although the potential exists for time share) and places allocated on a first come first served basis on receipt of a deposit.

Suitable for experienced intermediates and advanced climbers.
Contact Hywel, the trip leader, to secure your place and accommodation.

Off-Width Extravaganza at The You Yangs 18 Apr 2015 Top
Location:
You Yangs, Northwest Outcrops and Surrounds
Mike Poore

 
Details:
Come along and share Mike's off-width fetish for a day!
Have a great day out with like-minded climbers. Be prepared to throw your carcass at any number of 'classic' off-widths such as '1984'(18) or Santa's last Entry (20).
There are 5 off-widths to crawl into on the day. Once you’ve grovelled your way into and up those you can then move onto the many hand-plus sized cracks.
No specific skills required – just an appreciation of off-widths and a willingness to 'get down and dirty'.

Please contact Mike before the trip to register your interest and to find out more details.

Suitable for beginners, experienced intermediates and advanced climbers.
Contact Hywel, the trip leader, to secure your place.
