ALL participants on VCC club trips must show proof of double vaccination, or a valid medical vaccine exemption certificate, to attend. To sign in on the trip, all participants must:
- check-in using the QR code provided by the trip leader
- complete and sign the Trip Register as previously.
Both of these measures are to ensure the safety of participants and leaders, as well as expedite COVID-19 contact tracing if necessary.

During these COVID times, all VCC Events and trips may need to be cancelled at very short notice. If this trip goes ahead as planned, it is essential that all intending participants contact the leader prior to the trip, as well as read all of the documents referred to below. Members cannot just ‘turn up’ on the weekend. If the public health advice changes, there may be additional restrictions applicable to this trip.
It is important that all participants 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’.
We will be camping in The Pines, close to the action. There is no better rock to fondle than the hard quartzite of Arapiles, so contact your Trip Leader, Andrew Prentice, to register your interest.
These EOM@Araps/Djurite trips are intended for all levels of climbers, however Beginner spaces may be limited by the number of experienced leaders who come along. While Beginners are welcome on this trip, it’s important that Beginners contact the Trip Leader as soon as possible.
Due to the COVID restrictions, all intending participants must contact the trip leader prior to the trip. Please send through some details about your experience and climbing gear and hopefully we’ll see you there.
