About the Canberra Climbing Association
The Canberra Climbers Association (CCA) was founded in 1998. Membership is steadily growing and is now a respected body representing climbers' interests. The CCA has a broad membership base and supports all types of climbing ie: rock climbing, mountaineering, sports climbing, aid climbing, etc
The Association aims to:
The Association is involved in many consultations with Namadgi and Kosciuszko National Parks and Environment ACT about access to climbing areas. We have worked closely with Parks ACT to repair and maintain access tracks to climbing areas since the 2003 bushfires.
Members meet regularly to discuss local issues, catch up on recent exploits, as well as see and hear from a range of speakers about their climbing experiences in Australia and overseas. Members follow a diversity of climbing beliefs, styles and techniques, keeping the club lively. The CCA provides an opportunity for local climbers to network, organise trips and find new climbing partners.
Canberra climbers also get together on the CCA's social climbing days, from visiting the traditional granite heartland of Booroomba Rocks to modern cragging around Canberra, as well as nearby areas such as Blue Lake in Kosciusko National Park.
