What on earth is a knot night, you ask?  From 6:30 pm onwards a few of our more experienced climbers will demonstrate how to tie and apply the basic knots commonly used for climbing. This is a practical evening for CAWA members to learn useful skills for the real world. If you are new to outdoor climbing or planning to make the move soon, this informal night is perfect for you. Even if you aren’t ‘new’ but not 100% sure if what you are doing is quite right or you’d like to pick up some handy tips, come and join us. Also an excuse to socialise, we would love to see some of you crusty old rock gods come and impress our newer members with your climbing prowess. 

What does any of that have to do with Gesa looking so happy about me cutting her rope? I guess you’ll just have to come along and find out. 

Based in the upstairs meeting room of Rosie O’Grady’s Northbridge (205 James Street), pub grub is conveniently available if you are coming straight from work. 

There is no set structure for this evening. Everything will be worked through at a suitable pace. 

Please note that this training is provided for the benefit of CAWA members and is a FREE event. 

Non-members can join online here: CAWA Membership.

What to bring: rope; large locking carabiners and a few non-locking ones; accessory cord and belay device. Don’t panic if you don’t have some of these items. Just bring what you have. 

Please bring proof of membership with you: your CAWA membership card or Register Now receipt if you have only just joined. 

The Perth Rock Climbing Guide and our awesome new CAWA t-shirts will be available for $25 each.

It would be appreciated if you could bring the exact amount.

Please RSVP to cawa@climberswa.asn.au so that we have an idea of numbers.

Hope to see you there!
