Boulder curious? Feeling uncomfortably tethered? Got a granite habit? Why not join us for a day of bouldering at Mt Beckworth, where perfect rock hosts problems great and small, simple and dastardly, traditional and new school.
Mt Beckworth is a picturesque granite outcrop just west of Ballarat, about two hours’ drive from Melbourne. The Granite is fine grained and skin friendly, and we’ll be tackling problems ranging from V0 – V7.
Ben Wright and Evan Campbell are the Trip Leaders for this bouldering extravaganza. Please contact Ben prior to secure your place. Ben will also provide you more information and the meeting place and time.
The trip is open to all levels, but positions are limited. Please indicate your experience level when you contact Ben. The levels are listed below:
- Beginner: Have climbing experience, but have never bouldered outdoors before.
- Intermediate: Have bouldered outside before, and feel confident spotting.
- Expert: Have bouldered outside extensively, and feel confident spotting, identifying fall zones and placing pads.
You will need a helmet – you cannot climb without one. We’re happy for you to share a helmet with a friend, but please organise this beforehand. You do not need to wear a helmet while spotting. You don’t need your own mats, but if you do have mats please bring them; the more the merrier.
