White Rocks (Wickerslack Crag)


Current CCA members of any experience are welcome. The focus for the day is to provide an informative atmosphere. For new CCA members, the day is an opportunity to learn basic climbing, rope and cliff skills at the best introductory crag in the region.

This event is for current CCA members only. You cannot join CCA on the day of the event (* see note about CCA membership below).

The day will be hosted by the CCA Vice President, Brian Mattick, and coordinated by CCA member, Phil Thomas. If you are interested in attending, or have any questions about the event, please contact Phil at .

(* 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

If you have your own climbing gear (climbing rope, a few slings, carabiners and a belay device), please bring it.  If you are new to climbing and have only a harness and helmet, please let Phil know this when you register your intention to attend. We may have to limit numbers because of gear limitations.

You will also need to bring your own food, water and sunscreen for the day.

Meeting time and location

Meet at the car park in Wickerslack Lane, about 450m from the Old Cooma Rd intersection, at 10am.
