Please post your questions here.
We'll collate your questions. What we can't answer this evening we will address at a future forum.
Hi folks, the CCT will be holding a couple of forums in the next week to discuss some important developments for Tasmanian climbing. Please come along and join the discussion. If you can't make either of these events there will be more coming up.

I'm looking for the name of this particular seastack which is near The Lanterns, Tasman Peninsula. Rocks are the subject of my paintings and I'd like to give it the correct title. Thought it might be Cathedral rock but not sure. Can anyone help me out? Robyn

If you were the last person at risdon boulder, you know who you are shame on you. I'm happy however to accept an ignorance plea,
so im going to offer some education free of charge. here in tasmania we use brushes to remove our tick marks, if the tick marks are as long as you arm, like some of them were at risdon could i suggest a really big brush, alternatively do small tick marks and give me all the chalk your saving and desperate to use up. if your poor feel free to let me know id happily donate a brush to your poor arse cause, as would many more should they be made aware of your plight.
many thanks in advance for your improvement in behaviour.

Dear climbers, please support the crowd fund for the awesome new guidebook showcasing 1300 climbs at our 35 best cliffs. Most crags have been re-photographed so the topos look fantastic, new graphic design, 7 new crags including Flinders island and hundreds of action shots by Simon Bischoff. Out in November with book launch events at Beta park in Launceston and Rock It Gym in Hobart. Thanks for your support.
Hi team, lost a single miura at Mersey Cliffs. Possibly under the 26 on the first buttress. If found its worn but living partner would love to be reunited
Hi folks! Fruehauf cliff will be closed between 8.30am and 12.00 midday on this Sunday (16th) during the Crag Care Tasmania working bee. This is at the request from Hobart City Council. The weather looks a bit iffy so you're not missing much! If you're keen to come along and plant things instead there might be one spot left- email email@example.com to register.

A new selected best climbs guide to Tassie is going to be out next summer. The design looks amazing, a real step up in quality with totally revised graphics, new topos and drone shots of most cliffs, and Simon Bischoff's superb action photos. Seven new crags have been added including Flinders and Bruny Island and 1200 routes are described. Please support our crowd fund when it begins in June.
The Geol. Survey Branch (a Government agency) will be flying a drone over Mt. Wellington/Organ pipes again tomorrow. We had issues with fog this morning so will make another attempt tomorrow morning. See first post for details. We'll be positioned over the Ampitheatre and will have a spotter on the Organ Pipes Track for most of the time.
The Geol. Survey Branch (a Government agency) will be flying a drone over Mt. Wellington/Organ pipes tomorrow. Please be aware/take care if you intend on going climbing up there (between 7:30-10:30 am tomorrow morning). We'll have several spotters, radios etc. and will take every measure to make sure we do this as safely as we possibly can.
The work will enable us to build a 3D model of the Organ Pipes for geo-hazard mapping/planning purposes (nothing to do with the cable car proposal just in case anyone is wondering!).
Sorry if it's annoying/inconvenient for anyone (but hopefully shouldn't last too long!).
Gear found at base of fiddlesticks. Call Andrew on 0434876256 if you want it back.
