Climbing guide Brisbane

I've just finished up four days of Upskill guiding over the last couple of weeks. It's been nice to take things down a notch, and simply go out and enjoy a great volume of classic moderates - some of the best SE QLD has on offer. Sharing some of the climbs I love with others is great fun.

We had two half days out at Frog Buttress where we enjoyed Materialistic Prostitution 17, Wizards Back 16, The Stars Look Down 21, Infinity 19, Elastic RURP 18, Micron 16, Devil's Wart 15, Iron Mandible 18 and finished on the mighty Conquistador 21. I hadn't been to Frog for a few years and it was interesting being back.

The third day was on my home mountain, Mt Tibrogargan in the Glasshouses. Familiar territory, and it was brilliant being there and just getting stuck into some volume on Clemency Wall, Celestial Wall and the Carborundum area. We did ** Divergence 19 into Tested Twisticle LHV 17 to get to *** Caritas 21, then down for *** Rubicon p1 18 and ** Rubicon p2 22, then a quick blast up the classic *** Aphelion p3 22 on the way back down, then across for an excursion up ** Remains Of The Day (5 pitch 150m 16) into the Summit Caves. About 350m of quality climbing that day.

The final day left us with just a couple of hours, so a quick mission at Kangaroo Point allowed us to bag Bombadil 17, Idiot Wind 21, Pink Berets 21 and Brisbane Bitter 24. There was a friendly guest in one of the trees near Pink Berets too. Check him out...

So if anyone is doing a flying visit to Brisbane and would like to head out for a day, please get in touch. We can tailor a day out to suit exactly what you'd like to do whether that is sport, trad, difficulty, volume, single or multipitch, whatever.

See you out there!
