Trip Report: Easter Arapiles with MUMC

This Easter, the Melbourne University Mountaineering Club hired me to run three two-day Top-Rope and Seconding courses for their participants. Over 6 days, a total of 15 students hiked, climbed, clipped, knotted, placed, inspected and discussed their way through a series of skills necessary for safe, effective Top-Rope setups, and for working with a Lead Climber to safely and efficiently follow up some amazing trad climbs.

I enjoyed teaching this course (as I always do), but by the end of the 6th day I was mega exhausted! In saying that, a good group of enthusiastic students makes for a great experience for everyone, and we certainly had some fantastic people along!

Thank you guys for the opportunity to show you some essential skills out on the rock! See you next time!
