Oceania Lead and Speed 2016

Following on from the successful state title events around the country, Sport Climbing Australia will be hosting the Oceania titles in Sydney June 17-19th.  This is the first time in a number of years that an Oceania event has been held in Australia and we would love to see a big team of Victorians there representing us.

With Speed being held on the Friday afternoon and Lead on the Saturday and Sunday it is sure to be an action packed weekend at SICG Villawood.

Full event details are available in the info pack and registration is via the Sport Climbing Australia website.  

Keep training and we will see you there!

Sponsor Post – Maxim Ropes

LIGHTWEIGHT 9.5mm ROPE DESIGNED FOR TODAY’S SPORT CLIMBER.

It’s light enough for redpointing, but still has the legendary durability for which New England Ropes is known. Pinnacle is also an option for the trad climber who wants to climb longer pitches without adding weight or sacrificing durability and abrasion resistance. All Pinnacle ropes have an Endura Dry-treated core and 3 versions feature a 2X Dry cover, making Pinnacle a good choice for a lightweight single ice rope as well.

EQUINOX IS THE BEST VALUE IN A HIGH QUALITY ROPE

Manufacturing costs are minimized by incorporating more white yarns in the sheath construction, which reduces the expensive yarn dying processes. The durable Equinox features an Endura Dry treated core and is made to the same high standards as our Apex series. With its excellent knotability, ease of clipping, and its slim 9.9mm and 10.2mm diameters, the versatile Equinox is ideal for sport climbing or multi-pitch routes. EN 1892
