This is a relaxed outing with the intentions to go through some basic techniques like self-rescue out of a crevasse, pulley systems and maybe tree climber rescue. Z-drag, Swiss pulleys and other entertaining techniques coming your way 🙂
Australia has a surprising lack of glaciers and is therefore pretty much crevasse free. On the other hand, we’ve got plenty of coffee shops, wonderful gums and a local council which doesn’t mind climbing trees. This playdate is for mountaineers who want to brush up their crevasse and self rescue skills; technical tree climbers who just want to hang out after a stressful Thursday at work, as well as multi-pitch climbers who had an epiphany and realised they should practise those skills.
Of course you can also just climb trees for fun. Closest area for hipster-supplies is St. Georges > you can go climbing AND have a sustainable, gluten free falafel wrap! Maybe not – I have no idea. I’d just go for the ice-cream shop 🙂
– You have basic rope skills
– You have your own gear (mountaineering or tree climbing); including a helmet.
