Mount Arapiles 29 May 2021 — 30 May 2021

Due to the Statewide Lockdown announced on Thursday 27th May, the May EOM@Araps/Djurite has been cancelled. 

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 in very late autumn? Late autumn usually provides great conditions for climbing at Arapiles. Enjoy the cooler temperatures and fantastic friction. Get up (reasonably) early to enjoy a full day’s climbing. The warmer sun’s rays in the morning on the nearby classics and well-worn trade routes in the Organ Pipes can be stunning in May.  Maybe explore some new areas. The famous walls and prominent buttresses of Arapiles really come into their own at this time of the year. In fine weather climbs on the Watchtower Faces are a great day out.

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 will be limited by the number of experienced leaders who come along. It is recommended that Beginners contact the Trip Leader as soon as possible.

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.
