So you have abseiled down a cliff-face. How do you get back up? Well, one alternative would be to climb and Rockclimbing lets you do just that. For a weekend, the Rockclimbing team can take you to the Blue Mountains and show you all the tricks and skills you need to be a confident rock climber. Forget the Indoor Climbing Gyms, this is real climbing at its best!
Who can do it?
Climbing in various settings and conditions is available to all members of the Movement over the age of 8, through commercial climbing gyms, day activities and weekend trips.
When can I do this?
All year round, meeting nights, day trips, weekends.
