Did you want to try climbing outdoors? Have you tried climbing indoors and now want to give it a go outdoors?
Do you climb outdoors?
The UniSA Rock Climbing Club takes its members outdoors approximately once per month (weather permitting) to a variety of areas around Adelaide!!
YES! We love taking climbers of all levels outdoor climbing! You just need to be a financial member and there’s no additional charge for outdoor sessions! They are perfect for beginners as we have all the equipment you need and have the climbs set up ready to go! We’ll show you all the safety you need to know and ensure you have a great outdoor experience!
How do I find out when the outdoor days occur?
Join our facebook group to keep up to date with upcoming events and outdoor day information.
We also email financial members about the upcoming outdoor days!
Do I need to register?
Yes! For the safety and enjoyment of the club members, outdoor day attendance is limited! There is an online registration form available when the outdoor day date is announced! There will be a link provided in both the Facebook group and via email. You will need to register in order to attend and there is additional information provided by you to request gear and nominate to car pool.
Will I need to buy any gear or equipment?
We provide shoes, harnesses, chalk and helmets at each outdoor day. We provide and set up the top ropes and ensure that climbers have the appropriate gear for the outdoor days. You do not need to bring any quickdraws, belay devices etc.
I’m brand new at climbing, can I come to the outdoor day?
Yes! We require that members have climbed at least once at either Pridham Hall or VRC (so that they know how to tie in and belay) but if you can't attend either session and would like to still climb outdoors, send us an email and we can usually accomodate you!
We exclusively "top rope" so that everyone is able to actively participate and we set up both easy and hard routes! Everyone is usually able to climb something successfully on the day!
What should I bring to the ourdoor days?
Before each outdoor day we will email out a PDF doccument detailing the meeting point and any required gear. Generally we require you to wear comfortable, sunsmart gym clothes, bring 2L of water and snacks/lunch. You can also bring any climbing gear you may own like shoes or harnesses, but these are not required!
