The Canberra Climbers' Association (CCA) welcomes you to the ACT Region.  There are many opportunities for all types of rock climbing in and around the ACT.

The ACT has some of the best granite climbing in Australia.  ACT granite has outstanding frictional properties and to climb it requires precise footwork, balance and often some boldness.  Much of the climbing here is traditional and requires natural protection.  However, there is also plenty of sport climbing to be enjoyed as well as some difficult aid routes.  There is also climbing on other rock types such as rhyolite, limestone and sandstone that is nearby to the ACT.

Areas such as: Booroomba Rocks, Orroral Ridge, Billy Billy and Gibraltar Peak have a range of classic granite climbs at all levels of ability that will leave the visitor more than satisfied.  Mt Coree, Lost Vegas and the River Crags offer quality sport climbing.

The CCA hosts five meetings and slide presentations as well as several climbing days throughout the year.  The CCA also hosts, in conjunction with the ANU Mountaineering Club, the occasional special event involving a keynote speaker on climbing related topics.
