Re-bolting Fund Reminder and Developement

Hello CAWA members.

This is a call out regarding the CAWA rebolting fund. Financially it is doing very well thanks to the generosity of all.

The main reason for this communication is to ask for your suggestions for routes that may have dodgy bolts.

If you have come across a thoroughly aged or unsafe bolt, please notify us by filling out the following form:

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfvaMirtUIAV139DzIpyIqU7X9NrePsB6tacFlmwyAqTpWL4g/viewform?usp=sf_link

Also, we are constantly looking to upskill the West Aus climbing community so if you are an experienced route developer and have the time and motivation to pass on your skills, please email bolting@climberswa.asn.au and I will get you in touch with some climbers that are keen to learn.

 

If you are feeling happy and generous while reading this, please follow the link below and donate.

A shameless plug I know but please forgive me.

 

Cheers

Gareth (President)

CAWA Bouldering Trip, The Re-Randalling. Sat 20th May. 9:30am – when skin is gone. [cancelled due to heavy rain]

We tried for a day on the Randall blocs last year and got boned by the weather.  Fingers crossed for a different story this year.

Mt Randall is probably Perth’s finest bouldering area and it’s seen a truck-tone of development over the last year with a truck tone more to be done. Check out The Crag for the problems on offer.

https://www.thecrag.com/climbing/australia/western-australia/perth/area/963284130

A brief summary of the grades is below this thing that i am writing now.

V0 to V4 – 63 problems

V5 to V10 – 36 problems

Fuck off that’s too hard and/or too high – 55 problems

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. Boulder mats if you got em.

How to register

Please email me (garethw@climberswa.asn.au) to register before mid-day Friday 19/05/17 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 or they can just come on down and climb along side us.

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.
