CAWA Great Southern Trip 2018

Last Climbing Trip for 2018 – CAWA GREAT SOUTHERN Climbing

Registrations now OPEN for this year’s Christmas/New Year trip to WA’s Great Southern!

Please contact Anthony (anthonyb@climberswa.asn.au) to register your interest.

The dates this year will be  Wednesday, 26 December 2018 to Wednesday, 2 January 2019.

Accommodation sites are available at Kalgan River Caravan Park – this year’s chosen base. Being in Kalgan puts you nice and central to all the available climbing areas. Bookings are available on a first-come first-serve basis, and you are also welcome to register & organise your own accommodations.

Day climbing possibilities are endless: Porongurups, Peak Head, Blowholes, The Gap, West Cape Howe, and the Stirlings if you really need a multi-pitch adventure.

This is a social trip, and as such beginners should join groups where an appropriately experienced person is present. This is particular region is spread out over different areas, and the nature of some of the climbing and skills required to access certain areas can be quite challenging. If you are interested in attending, but not sure of what you need, feel free to email Anthony. I will coordinate groups where possible and if ride-sharing is available.

 NEW YEAR’s EVE Celebrations are earmarked for Three Anchors in Middleton Beach – a great way to establish a belay for the 2019 year tongue-out

Due to legal and liability issues, CAWA does not provide training on trips. All climbers must be independent participants who are completely responsible for themselves. If you are an inexperienced climber, then have a chat to some of the more experienced members you know and see if they are planning to attend.
