CAWA 2011 Albany / West Cape Howe Xmas and New Years trip
Posted on CAW Website December 07, 2011 by Janice to Events, News
After Christmas there will be the (un)usual CAWA climbing trip to Albany, the dates being from the evening of Tuesday 27 December 2011 until 03 January 2012.
There will be limited places for 20 people at a private property about 20 km east of Albany. At the property there is a hot shower (with a view), flush toilet, a shed with a fridge and a gas stove, and a small undercover area. However you will need to bring your tent, sleeping bag and other camping gear. To cover the cost of gas for the shower, and electricity, we will be charging $2 per night per person.
If you are interested in coming, please let us know and directions and more information will be sent to you. Please note that due to there only being one shower and toilet at the property, we have decided that there will be a limit of only 20 places available and this will be on a first-come, or rather first booked, basis. Of course, if you are too late in replying or wish to stay elsewhere, you are welcome to do so but still participate in all the other CAWA activities on this trip.
As usual, we will be making day trips to The Gap, Peak Head, West Cape Howe (who’s got a 4×4?), the Porongurups and any other places that people want to go to.
On New Years Eve we will probably be going to a restaurant in Albany. The last few years we have been going to a cheap and cheerful Chinese restaurant, but if someone wants to suggest somewhere else that isn’t too expensive, please do. Otherwise we could also just have a BBQ at the property.

Please note that CAWA trips are a benefit for members. Non-members who are interested in coming with you can join online now (easiest) or on the first day of the trip.
All participants need to be ‘independent participants’. This means you are responsible for your own safety. Due to legal and liability issues, CAWA does not provide training. If you are an inexperienced climber then have a chat to some of the more experienced people you know and see if they are planning to attend. Climbing at Albany, West Cape Howe, the Porongorups and at the Stirlings is challenging and requires a level of experience and expertise. These are not “beginners” climbs.
