***This is a trial event for the keen climbers among you***
What we'll be doing
In an effort to inspire those dedicated climbers amongst the AW ranks we'll be heading out to the natural playground of Baring Head which has a multitude of world class boulder problems over looking the Cook Strait. We'll spending a few hours getting to grips with climbing outdoors on small boulders, learning safety, a bit of technique and most of all, having fun.
3/10 – 45min-1hr walk from the carpark to Baring Head. No outdoor climbing experience necessary but some indoor experience is useful.
Meet in the carpark at 10am. 4-5hrs (NB - this includes the 45min-1hr walk to and from the boulders so 2-3hrs of climbing in all)
This event is weather dependant and may be cancelled due to adverse weather conditions. A decision will be made at least 12hrs before the start of the event so keep an eye out here for updates.
What to bring
Warm comfortable clothing to walk and climb in, water, a snack/lunch, *your own climbing shoes*
(If you don't already have your own climbing shoes beg, borrow, steal or buy - http://www.bivouac.co.nz/gear/climbing/rock-climbing-shoes.html or trademe!)
