Melbourne: Women's Top-Rope Climbing in the Outdoors

Women's Top-Rope Climbing in the Outdoors // 28th Oct - $120

Join us for a day of top-rope climbing in the outdoors, led by Melbourne Climbing School. Get a taste of real rock and learn some technique tricks + tips from a nationally qualified climbing guide.

Schedule, Meeting Point + Facilities

9am - meet at Ironbark Gorge Track Car Park (click for map)
This is a 1 hour drive from Melbourne CBD.

We will then follow the walking track for less than 40 minutes to arrive at Falcon's Lookout. There are boardwalks and stairs. It typically takes 25 minutes though the signpost states 40 minutes.

Falcon's Lookout is a clean, vertical cliff face, boasting a collection of 67 climbs of all skill levels - there will be something for everyone!

Please note: there are no facilities at the cliff. There are no toilets; the bush is your only option! Bacchus Marsh is the last stop with facilities, cafés and shops. 

3pm - we aim to pack up at 3pm so you can expect to be leaving the carpark at 4pm
