To all ladies in our club,
you are invited to join our

Ladies Trip to the Rock

aka Crazy Cats in Crazy Socks,
with delicious pies and afternoon tea on top of the rock

The trip will be run by our experienced adventurers Lady Vladi, Fiona, Susan and our fashion advisor, Sam. We will conquer the rock with style and elegance while sharing gossips and giggles over hot tea, cocoa, and delicious biscuits.

Skills taught on this trip will be tailored by the experience of participating ladies but will certainly cover the basic rope skills for outdoor top roping and climbing technique. This may include lead climbing and anchor building.

We will also cover delicate women topics and answer any of your important questions. Particular focus will be put on sock and stocking fashion in rock climbing, such as:

– Current state of the sock market – latest forecasts
-Dots versus herringbone
-Stripy socks and tiger snakes
-Full body socks — hit of winter 2019
-Up and coming harnesses with integrated stocking clips
– Holes, intentional or accidental – advantages of good ventilation
– LED socks for night climbing
– Is knitting a good finger warm-up?
– To tuck or not to tuck, that is the question

Places on this trip are limited by the weight of porcelain, cocoa and cookies we can carry.

Necessary requirement to be accepted to this is you have to have previous climbing experience (at least indoors) and have your own climbing shoes.

Location to be determined, most likely Blue Mountains. The trip will be postponed in the event of bad weather.
