Twilight @ Camels Hump, Mt Macedon

Camels Hump, Mount Macedon 19 Jan 2017

jayden-grey-areteWhy not take advantage 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 late afternoon and climb until dark at Melbourne’s premier summer crag. Some might even start climbing earlier.

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.
