Mt Arapiles provides magnificent climbing days in autumn. There are plenty of options when choosing cliffs in late autumn. Depending on the weather, a multipitch on the Watchtower faces or the sun of Central Gully Left might be best. Go for a walk and climb at some of the more distant sun soaked cliffs in the Northern Group for a bit more solitude.
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, Michael O’Reilly, 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. It is recommended 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.
