This generous discount is available exclusively to CCA members and is not matched at any other outdoor shop in Canberra.

CCA contact list
The CCA contact list (which is not publicly available) has the names and details of all members who want other members to be able to contact them to arrange climbing trips. The option to join the contact list is provided when members either join CCA initially or renew their membership.
The contact list works as follows:
- You email with “Message for CCA Contact List” as the Subject Line, and a message you want sent to everyone on the list; maybe like “Hi, anyone want to climb [sport/trad] with me at grades A-B at crag C in coming months? You can reach me at [email and/or phone]. Cheers, [your full name]”.
- Within a month (maybe faster, but no promises), the Membership Secretary will forward your message, bcc’d so no-one sees other people’s addresses, to everyone on the list.
Note: Because of the delay in sending out messages, the contact list cannot be used to find a climbing partner for the coming weekend! Whether and how anyone responds to you is up to them.
How to become a CCA member
There are a few ways to join the CCA, or to renew your membership:
- fill out the online membership form and pay by direct bank deposit (our preferred way – please use this if you can)
- fill out the printable form (PDF 220KB), then
- post it, with a cheque, to Canberra Climbers’ Association, PO Box 208, Campbell ACT 2612
- bring it to the next meeting with your money and hand it to the CCA Membership Secretary, Jack Pezzey.
Membership costs $20 for one year or $50 for three years.
Membership fees go towards maintaining climbing areas around Canberra, as well as minor administration costs such as running this website.
The CCA Membership Secretary, Jack Pezzey, is happy to answer any question regarding membership to the CCA.
