Why not take advantage of the last of the long summer days, daylight saving and climb in the evening and the coolness of Camels Hump? The plan is to start in the evening and climb until dark at Melbourne’s premier summer crag.
We will be climbing routes on both the Lower Cliff, and up on the Omega Block, at Camels Hump. It is quite a user friendly crag in terms of the area at the base of the climbs and the ability to set up top-ropes on some of the climbs – or at least have multiple climbers seconding a route.
If you intend to lead, bring along a few bolt plates as a few of the routes still have some carrot bolts for protection. While the Omega Block is home to plenty of harder sport routes, grades 21 and above, the Lower Cliff has a range of intermediate climbs. These are mostly trad climbs.
