CCA General Meeting / guest speaker Andy King

March 16 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

South Face Douglas Peak

Our first event for the year is a special event – a combined General Meeting at Mont Adventure Equipment and an opportunity to hear from Andy King representing DMM and Edelrid.

The evening will kick off with a short session by the CCA Vice-President, Brian Mattick, who will outline issues and events that the CCA is currently engaged in such as cliff access, bolting and cliff-care at Booroomba Rocks. After the information session, there will be an opportunity for members and guests to socialise and buy any gear. Mont will be doing a one-night-only super-duper specials on selected DMM hardware and Edelrid ‘biners.

The information session will be followed by our guest speaker presentation, given tonight by Andy King.

Mont will be giving away a lucky-door-prize of a 60m Edelrid Taipan rope valued at $279.95. The Taipan is a great ecological choice because it is made of high-quality left-over yarns from other productions.

All welcome. Please bring along family and friends. You will be able to join the CCA on the night ($20 per year or $50 for three years) if you want to take advantage of your CCA special 20% discount on Mont gear.

Guest speaker: Andy King

Andy is a rock and ice climber with extensive time logged in the Warrumbungles, Wolgan Valley and Blue Mountains. He has also spent months and months on end, ice and mixed climbing in NZ. Just for fun, Andy spent a month doing some Winter speed ascents in Norway.

Andy will talk about some of his adventures as well as about DMM and Edelrid – two of the truly great global climbing brands. DMM are celebrating 40 years of making classy gear in their Welsh foundry. Edelrid have developed some new revolutionary rope technology that is truly game-changing.
