Twilight @ Camels Hump – Part 1: Omega Block

Camels Hump, Mount Macedon 7 Feb 2019 6:00pm

jayden-grey-areteWhy not take advantage of the long summer days, daylight saving and climb in the evening and the coolness of Camels Hump at Mt Macedon? The plan is to start in the evening and climb until dark at Melbourne’s premier summer crag.

On this first twilight trip, we will be climbing 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 cliff and the ability to set up top-ropes on some of the climbs. 

The Omega Block is home to plenty of harder sport routes, grades 21 and above, as well as a handful of intermediate climbs. These are mostly trad climbs.

The Omega Block is also home to Victoria’s first Grade 17: Witch. Come along and see whether you can finesse this old-school classic.

If you are interested in joining the VCC on this trip, please contact the Trip Leader, Peter Upton, to secure your place. Beginner numbers are limited.
