Blue Lake climbing weekend 2024

March 16 - March 17

Blue Lake, Kosciuszko National Park, NSW

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. The event is open to all current CCA members, and please note that you cannot join CCA on the day of the event (* see note about CCA membership below).

This is a climbing camp and we don’t provide instruction; we expect everybody to be self-sufficient climbers. However, for those that are a little rusty, there are opportunities to tie in to the other end of the rope and follow more experienced climbers up on some of the easy single-pitch classics on Elephant Buttress.

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.

(* Note about CCA membership: you can only join CCA via our website, and it takes about a month to receive your member’s card after you submit the membership application form on-line and pay the membership fee)

What to bring

You will need to be a self-sufficient camper and climber for the entire weekend. We don’t provide any gear for this weekend’s event.

The crag is a 4 km trek from the carpark at Charlotte Pass, and is a steady uphill for most of the way. You will need to walk with all your climbing and camping gear, from the car park  to where we camp above the tree line. Day climbing is also possible by walking the 4 km trek from the car park to the cliffs with just your climbing gear.
