Rock Climbing

Welcome to rock climbing with MUOC in 2016! We are pleased to have Julian joining the team this year alongside Will, and we’re certain that it’s going to be a year to remember!

Too often people put rock climbing in the too hard basket, or assume that it’s too extreme for them. Well, here at MUOC we think rock climbing is for everyone!

There are few sports in the world that take you to such amazing places, and let you meet such incredible people – all while honing your skills and trying for just one more hold. We all love climbing, and want to share our passion and knowledge with you!

So how do you get involved?

 Indoor Climbing

Every Wednesday during semester we meet at Hard Rock Nunawading at 7pm for a night of indoor climbing fun! We also arrange carpooling from Monash Clayton, for those interested please contact the club climbing rep. This is a great way to meet other climbers and hone your skills in a controlled environment! These sessions are very beginner friendly and are open to anyone who is interested!

There will also be trips to Hardrock CBD climbing gym on Monday nights during semester. There will be no carpooling for this event but all are still welcome! Generally there will be an opportunity for some drinks afterwards in true climbing fashion. Please contact Will if you are interested!

 Day Trips

A couple of times each semester we organise to take a group of climbers away to crags around Melbourne to experience some outdoor climbing. Again, these are very beginner friendly and will be advertised through email and on the club facebook page!

Mt Arapiles

Every Easter we venture up to the Rock Climbing Mecca that is ‘Araps’ for a week of climbing, exploring and shenanigans. For full details please visit the Mt Arapiles page

Lead Climbing

There will always be those seeking the next level of challenge in climbing. For those of you after just that little bit more thrill, there will be opportunities to learn how to lead climb. We are blessed to have some very skilled climbers in the club, and they all remember what it was like to be a beginner. Take the opportunity to learn from them! Opportunities to learn to lead will be available during the semester and advertised close to the date.

With all these climbing options available to you all that’s left to do is take the plunge and join us on the Wall! If you have any questions, or just want to get involved, please email our awesome climbing reps and they’ll be happy to help you out.
