Mt Randall Bouldering Trip May 21st or 22nd (depending on weather)

Beautiful forest, easy(ish) access and great blocks with a variety of styles and grades.  This is bouldering at Mt Randall and CAWA are organising a trip out there.

Access

Mt Randall bouldering is about 45min – 1hrs drive from Perth CBD followed by about a 10 min walk in (map + topo will be provided). Boulder mats, eskies, water and safety equipment will be driven to the boulders using 4WDs but there is very limited parking at the boulders so most climbers will have to do the walk in.

Transport

Climbers are responsible for their own transport on the day.  Having said that, if you have no transport and still want to participate, let me know and I will organise some car pooling for you.

What you will need

Water and food for the day, climbing shoes and chalk.

How to register

Please email me (garethw@climberswa.asn.au) to register before mid-day Wednesday 18/05/16 please. Once registrations are received, we will provide further information.

Other important information

Notice – We want lots of people to come along but due to our insurance cover all participants must be current CAWA members. Non-members that are keen to come along can join CAWA online here.

Disclaimer – 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 climbers you know and see if they are planning to attend. Participants under the age of 18 must have a parent, guardian or other responsible person to accompany them.
