The on again EAGLESTONE ROCK trip is OPEN FOR REGISTRATION….
Friday 30 August 2013 to Sunday 1 Sept 12
There are ~30 routes going from a grade 10 trad through to the classic big crack “Fidget Gene”, a grade 23 trad and “Whiplash”, a 25.. In between there are a mix of bolted and mixes bolted and trad routes to satisfy most. The climbing area is a stones throw from the camp site and the weather, hopefully, will be cold but clear (my prediction…)
As this is a CAWA members trip, you will be emailed the Registration Form for you to fill in with as much detail as you can please. Email it back to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will process the registrations and confirm back with you. If you join CAWA and don’t get the registration email, please email CAWA and we will send it to you.
We expect to head out Friday 30 August early’ish to meet together at Baker’s Hill Pie Shop about 9:00am. We then, fully pie’d up and tanked, head out past Northam and stop in at Merredin to re-group and pick up some lunch before heading out for another 1-1.5hrs drive to Eaglestone Rock.
Remember, there are NO FACILITIES at Eaglestone Rock, so bring you own camping gear, food, water, head torch, climbing gear, and firewood… and a camera, as the place is quite spectacular. NEW NEWS — THERE IS A BRAND NEW TOILET AT EAGLESTONE NOW, so you wont need shovels, unless you still want to !!!
You won’t need a 4WD but there are patches of soft sand on the 500mt track from the road to the campsite. There will be 4WD’s there no doubt that will have snatch straps etc if needed. If you can throw a 15kg bag of firewood from you local petrol station in you car it will help, thanks.
Closer to the time we will issue a directional “mud” map, contact details, a mini-guide, and forecast weather details.
So hope you can join us for a “remote” camping and climbing experience – Your happy camper and trip co-ordinator, <SNIP SNIP> Neil Humphries..
