Climbing with Kids – Grampians

Halls Gap and Central Grampians Crags 11 Nov 2017 — 12 Nov 2017

Join the Victorian Climbing Club (VCC) & Western Victorian Climbing Club (WVCC) in an enjoyable weekend of family climbing in the Grampians.
Based at Lakeside Caravan Park Halls Gap and climbing in the central Grampians, we will visit a progression of crags for younger children, as well as more challenging sites for older teens and parents to enjoy.

Both trip leaders have experience with progressing kids climbing and are keen to assist parents in finding and enjoying a variety of sites well suited to family climbing.

Climbing will involve top roping, with several sites set up for families to visit.

Your own climbing equipment will need to be provided, as a minimum a helmet, harness, sling and carabiner are required. Helmets are required to be worn whilst climbing, belaying and when you are situated below others climbing.
Climbing shoes are not essential for younger climbers; firm fitting sand shoes are fine.
