Welcome back to our EOM@Araps/Djurite trips after our extended COVID break.

A few important changes have been made to enable us to safely resume club trips. So please read the VCC COVID-19 Safety Plan and VCC Advice to Participants on Club Trips, Courses and Activities before signing up for this trip. The advice and guidelines have been published on our website:

Mt Arapiles at the end of summer? Arapiles in late February can provide some excellent climbing. Enjoy the cooler and shady gullies or the routes on the left side of Central Gully. Get up early and enjoy the sun’s rays on the nearby classics and well-worn trade routes in the Organ Pipes.  Maybe explore some new areas. All those famous walls and prominent buttresses of Arapiles have shady gullies nearby! These gullies sometimes have cool breezes emanating from the ‘bowels of Araps’.

But it’s also the beginning of Autumn – peak climbing season. Maybe we’ll get lucky and have some early autumn weather. Either way, Arapiles will be a great place to be this weekend.
