Due to the current Coronavirus outbreak, the Sydney Rockies monthly meetings will not be held at the usual time of first Wednesday of each month.

Club trips already planned will be managed on a case by case basis with limits to the number of participants.

A December club trip to the awesome Mount Keira – West Face crag. Excellent easy trad and sport routes – perfect for learning to lead. As you can see in the photo, our group of 20 managed to occupy the popular amphitheater for most of the day – but there were some non-club climbers due to the bushfires restricting many Blue Mountains crags.

Ahh the job of a trip leader never ends. If you bring a helmet, might as well wear it.

A few cheeky trad leads to finish off a great day once most had left.

There is a proposal to upgrade the Great Western Highway between Katoomba and Lithgow. Most of the upgrade is to increase the number of lanes, but for Blackheath there are a few options: 1. Duplicate existing road 2. Outer bypass (crag impact) 3. Western bypass 4. Long and short tunnel options

The Outer Bypass option will impact the Centennial Glen and Shipley crags and our climbing community need to provide feedback to avoid this option being selected.

Have your say by filling out the feedback form by 16 December on https://www.rms.nsw.gov.au/projects/great-western-highway/katoomba-to-lithgow/index.html
