Summerday Valley Weekend Escape with Cheese and Wine – Trip FULL

Summerday Valley, Grampians and Mt Zero Log Cabins 20 May 2017 — 21 May 2017

This trip is now FULL. Please contact Ollie if you’d like to be added to the Waiting List.

Summerday Valley is a popular climbing area of the Grampians providing a range of single pitch Beginner and Intermediate grade climbs which are protected using Trad gear. Most of the area is now open to the public after the fires, so we will have a range of areas to climb including Back Wall and Wall of Fools.

Not only is the Grampians a world class climbing area, it is also home to one of Australia’s most historical and acclaimed wine regions. Since when in Rome, one must do as the Romans do, we have organised this trip to bring you the best of both worlds – Climbing and Wine. Some experts even believe that the antioxidants in wine help you to live longer and climb harder! Some climbers believe that red wine is the best liquid for rehydration!

To enjoy the best of both the wine and the cheese, we will be staying at the Mt Zero Log Cabins. Leave some room after dinner, bring some cheese and wine and join us for a Saturday night social gathering. There is no better way to relax after a full day of climbing than to chill out by the campfire with some well earned cheese and wine.

Accommodation: Mt Zero Lodge – approximately $27 per person per night for a 6 person share cabin.

The Trip Leaders for this climbing and social extravaganza are Ollie Sherlock and Helen McFadzean. Please contact Ollie prior to the trip to secure your place. Full payment for the accommodation in advance will be required to secure your place on this trip.

Places on this trip are very limited. Beginner places and non-leader places are also limited.
