Hi team, lost a single miura at Mersey Cliffs. Possibly under the 26 on the first buttress. If found its worn but living partner would love to be reunited
Hi folks! Fruehauf cliff will be closed between 8.30am and 12.00 midday on this Sunday (16th) during the Crag Care Tasmania working bee. This is at the request from Hobart City Council. The weather looks a bit iffy so you're not missing much! If you're keen to come along and plant things instead there might be one spot left- email firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
Crag Care Tasmania is hosting a working bee at Fruehauf next Sunday (16th) from 9-11.30am. Come along to help remove weeds and revegetate Hobart's most hard working and popular city crag! If you're keen please email email@example.com to register. Limited spaces left!
This event is run in partnership with The City of Hobart Bushcare Program and Wildcare Tasmania.
Topo attached, route description available.
A new selected best climbs guide to Tassie is going to be out next summer. The design looks amazing, a real step up in quality with totally revised graphics, new topos and drone shots of most cliffs, and Simon Bischoff's superb action photos. Seven new crags have been added including Flinders and Bruny Island and 1200 routes are described. Please support our crowd fund when it begins in June.
The Geol. Survey Branch (a Government agency) will be flying a drone over Mt. Wellington/Organ pipes again tomorrow. We had issues with fog this morning so will make another attempt tomorrow morning. See first post for details. We'll be positioned over the Ampitheatre and will have a spotter on the Organ Pipes Track for most of the time.
The Geol. Survey Branch (a Government agency) will be flying a drone over Mt. Wellington/Organ pipes tomorrow. Please be aware/take care if you intend on going climbing up there (between 7:30-10:30 am tomorrow morning). We'll have several spotters, radios etc. and will take every measure to make sure we do this as safely as we possibly can.
The work will enable us to build a 3D model of the Organ Pipes for geo-hazard mapping/planning purposes (nothing to do with the cable car proposal just in case anyone is wondering!).
Sorry if it's annoying/inconvenient for anyone (but hopefully shouldn't last too long!).
Gear found at base of fiddlesticks. Call Andrew on 0434876256 if you want it back.
Just wondering if anyone has investigated the boulders above Linda? They look quite promising with easy access from the comfort of a car.
I have some quick draws from sand river if they’re yours or know who’s they are touch base and I’ll get them back to you,
I’m looking for accommodation for 6-12 months and partners for climbing shenanigans of all types. I like long challenging climbs most, but really love it all, from pebble wrestling to sketchy multi pitch ice/mixed sufferfests. Have rack and will travel. Currently studying Mechanical Engineering remotely at UC Berkeley and will likely be remote for a long time. Feel free to pass my details along. Cam. 04OOI5023O.
Organ Pipes access ( 4- day road closure, from 23 November 2020)
From the HCC Pinnacle Road - road status website: -
“Pinnacle Road can be closed any time due to unsafe conditions or traffic congestion. When the road status changes this page is updated.”
“The City of Hobart intends to close Pinnacle Road on kunanyi/Mt Wellington to carry out critical road maintenance work for up to four days, starting on Monday 23 November. The road will re-open by Friday 27 November, or sooner if it is safe to do so.”
Not just for road works.
In winter (probably often in early Spring and Autumn too), the mountain road seems to be closed every second day (or more) overnight and well into the morning due to” ice, snow and dangerous conditions”. Gone are the days when we could drive up any time of the day and night to have a climb. Constant road closures abound. Our modern protector society and no doubt liability issues are ever with us now along with a high visitor scenario.
So, better check the website summer and winter.
and a pdf on why. “Stay Safe on the Mountain”
Nesting peregrine falcons near top pitches of Winning Streaks. Best avoided for a while.
Hi folks. I think I left two grey Petzl draws with blue Oxygen bentgates at the Paradiso on 1 November. Probably at the top of Man's Machine or Too Tall Oxen.
