Covid-19 Announcement


As you are all aware, Premier Andrews announced that we have moved into stage three in our response to the Covid-19 outbreak. Across Victoria, climbers have been stepping up and doing our part to slow the virus down by following the Stay at Home Directions.

This includes not going climbing during this time. These restrictions are tough but lives are at risk if we let the virus get out of control, please stay at home so this doesn’t happen. There’s lots you can do in meantime to be ready for when we can climb again:

1. Perfect your home wall or hangboard setup – share it with us and your friends too! please remember though that the prohibited gatherings include restrictions of inviting friends over to private residences

2. check out some great training resources like this one to address some of your niggles.

3. learn some new crag ready recipes so you’ll be ready with nutritious meals when we can head out again.

We can’t wait to go climbing again and enjoy one another’s company on the walls but until then, PLEASE STAY AT HOME.

For up to date information about the Covid-19 response in Victoria please go to:
