When: Sunday 4th December, 3.30pm-7pm (BBQ around 5pm)
Where: Point Walter Reserve in Bicton (See map on the online guide)
Directions: Come down Honour Rd on the left side of Pt Walter Reserve, going straight through the roundabout at Carroll Drive and continuing on past the tennis courts. On your right you will see a kid’s playground some parking and BBQ’s that are quite close to the road. We will be in that general area, fairly close to the road. On your left, if you follow the path down to the water, you will find a long expanse of limestone wall conveniently placed for your bouldering pleasure.
What to bring: Deck chairs or picnic blankets, Sun screen, hats, mozzie repellent, towel, old climbing shoes or joggers, chalk bag, swimmers, jumper (if it comes in cool) and your favourite outdoor game.
CAWA will provide: a selection of BBQ meats, sauce, buns, tasty salads. Soft drink and water, plastic plates, cups and cutlery, BBQ Masterchef’s required to help handle the tongs !!! (Please inform us of any dietary requirements when you RSVP)
Activities: Bouldering (is optional), Eating (5-6pm) and your favourite outdoor game
If you’ve never bouldered at Blackwall Reach before, please note that there is a good chance you’ll get wet, so being able to swim is handy. This will either come from falling into the river, or from young hoons jumping into the water from the top and splashing you. It’s a long traverse on limestone and it will probably help if you join people who have been there before. It’s not overly obvious where the start is and they’ll be able to point out sections that are a bit tricky or where, if you’re getting pumped, it might pay to wade across the submerged rocks rather than fall onto them. You can climb up high or stay as low as you like. Overall, your commonsense will need to prevail, as with all climbing activities. The rock is sharp and tends so don’t have a manicure the day before, it’ll be wasted.
Good attire to wear are bathers and/or boardies and old climbing shoes (trainers are ok). Chalk bags not necessary. If you have kids or other non-climbing family members coming along and they want to try it, remember that you’ll be responsible for them as due to legal and liability reasons CAWA cannot be responsible for their supervision and safety.
Cost: Non members $10, Kids under 10yrs are free. Payment can be done on the day, please bring exact change. CAWA T-shirts $15 (Sizes and colours are limited) and Guide books $29 (down from $39 in the retail shops) will be available for purchase as a once off on the day special.
RSVP: firstname.lastname@example.org by no later than Wednesday 30th November
Please note that RSVP’s are required to ensure that attendees are catered for.
We look forward your response
