Climbing day at The Cloisters, Orroral Ridge
The Cloisters is a jumble of granite boulders on the Orroral Ridge, in Namadji National Park, ACT. There are good climbs at all grades (see descriptions below), and most of the day’s activities will take place around The Hello Boulder (15m high, pictured above) and Simple Simon Slabs, where there are some excellent, moderately-graded crack and wall / slab climbs.
Participants of any experience are welcome.
Please register your interest with the coordinator, Brian Mattick (see details below).
