A big hello to all Climbers for 2013
The committee is meeting next week to finalise the 2013 trips for the club. Lots of people are keen so it should be a good year. 2012 was a big year for the club with over 100 members and a number of very successful trips including China. A note that subscriptions are now due.
Mostly though have fun on the rock throughout the year, no matter what you are climbing or where and remember to be safe. Always pay attention to the details, whether you are toproping, seconding or leading.
Your 2013 committee
After a number of incredibly successful trips since Easter 2012, the China trip leaves tomorrow 20-10.
The club has had record turnouts for the Girraween, Frog, Red Cliffs/Goanna Point, Brooyar and Urbenville trips. Can't believe the number of climbers getting out there onto the crags and enjoying their climbing.
Any way, we fly out of Brissie tomorrow morning for 2 weeks of climbing in Yangshuo. David and Nigel have laptops so we'll keep the pics and info flowing, mostly via the facebook page.
Well the Easter trip is over and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the climbing. We sports climbed ourselves silly on the Friday at Lindesay Rocks then trad climbed classics at Euglah Rock and The Governor on the Saturday and Sunday. For me it was the best Kaputar trip ever. Onsighting Yummikins (17) and The Last Waltz (18) at Euglah were definite highlights, along with leading Clandestiny (16).
I'm sure everyone will have there favourite story and climb. Just ask.
Eddie and I then headed to the Warrumbungles where we packed it up to Balor hut and the next day climbed a gem called Vertigo. Pitch 2 & 3 are worth the hike in. The next day Dave and Ricarda joined us and we found our way to the bottom of the classic Cornerstone Rib. Old style multipitch with pitches 3 & 4 having MEGA EXPOSURE to boot. I got to lead all the pitches and that day has to be one of the highlights in my time climbing.
NGungun trip on the 18th Feb, our first trip of the year, so lets all make an effort to get there. All are welcome
