Winter Solstice at Honeysuckle Creek
June 24 - June 25
This is a great chance to meet other climbers, have a few drinks and tell a few unbelievable yarns around a roaring campfire.
You will need to have a climbing partner to go climbing on this weekend.
The weekend is not an introductory activity for novice climbers, and there will be NO GUIDED CLIMBING for this event. If you cannot arrange a leader, you are welcome to still come along for the camp out.
The CCA will pay camping fees at Honeysuckle Creek Camp Ground, and we will provide wood for the campfire. We need to know participant numbers to register with ACT Parks and pay the camping fee, so please let the organisers know if you are coming to camp overnight (see RSVP details below).
Honeysuckle Creek Camp Ground has water, toilets, fireplaces, picnic tables and chairs. There is no electricity. You will need to provide everything else, including:
- Warm clothes, beanie, gloves etc. in many layers. It will be cold overnight!
- Dinner and breakfast, including food, cooking utensils, stove, plates and bowls, cup etc.
- Tent, sleeping bag, sleeping mat, torches (it is the longest night of the year, after all), a folding chair and any other creature comforts you feel are necessary.
We will be camping about 30-70m from the car park.
