Yarra Valley Grammar Link@9 Step Up Step Out: Climbing and Bush-walking
Yarra Valley Grammar
Mount Arapiles is a world class rock climbing venue with climbs ranging from beginner, to some of the hardest in the world. This program operates from a base camp, where daily preparation, nightly reflection, and small group communal living take place . Students will be instructed in basic climbing techniques, belay work and introductory abseiling by qualified OEG staff in a safe and controlled environment. Students will then have an opportunity to progress onto “multi-pitch” climbing in small groups. This is where the rope is used to progressively move up the cliff face in stages. Students will rely on teamwork and cooperation amongst their peers for success in these areas
AbseilingDescending a rock face or a climbing tower, we love the views from the top and the courage we see as students aim for their personal best and encourage one another.
BushwalkingBe it a day's hike or a short walk to camp, bushwalking engages all our senses allowing us to explore nature and our place within it. And we always find something exciting along the way!
CampingCamping out in tents is our speciality! We love telling stories around the campfire, looking up at the night sky and creating memories that will last a lifetime!
Rock ClimbingRock climbing on a climbing wall or up a rockface invites students to set their own goals, step by step they develop confidence even if they don’t make it to the top in the beginning.
