Blue Lake climbing weekend 2021
January 29 - January 31
Blue Lake in Kosciuszko National Park, NSW, is a rare and beautiful cirque lake which has some of the clearest waters of any Australian lake. Granite cliffs of up to 55m overlook the west side of Blue Lake, providing some wonderful traditional climbing and the only alpine climbing area in Australia.
CCA holds this climbing weekend annually. It is open to all CCA members and to non-members who join CCA ($20 for one year or $50 for three years) at the beginning of the weekend. All participants will also need to sign a CCA Activity Waiver (PDF 75KB) before the weekend.
If you are interested in attending, please register with the event coordinator, Zac Zaharias (details below). He will then send you details including the camping location and possible car pooling options.
- this is a climbing camp and we don’t provide instruction; we expect everybody to be self-sufficient climbers and campers. However, for those that are a little rusty, there are opportunities to tie in to the other end of the rope and follow up on some of the easy single-pitch classics on Elephant Buttress.
- you will need to walk 4 km with your climbing and camping gear, from the car park at Charlotte Pass to where we camp above the tree line. Day climbing is also possible by doing the 4 km treck from the car park to the cliffs with just your climbing gear.
