Thinking of taking a trip to Central Australia?

Well now you can find out if (and indeed there is) anything to climb.
Bring your gear!

Introducing Red Centre Rock, a website all about climbing in Central Australia. Includes a complete online guidebook to over a dozen climbing areas and hundreds of climbs.

Hopefully this site will show you that indeed there is good climbing in Central Australia, and that it is not just a vast flat desert as commonly imagined.

The whole MacDonnell Range has some fantastic crags, often in beautiful and unique locations, and while little of the climbing is world class, it's a fun place to climb, with constant good weather. If you are climbing in the summer, then there is often a crag in the shade, with a cooling waterhole on the way home.

All the best,

Nice work Goshen... just doubled my desire to get to the Red Centre! Even if the rock isn't 'world class' the setting can't be beat! :-)

Nice site, Goshen. I was down that way a bunch of years back and did some scrambling in several parts of the MacDonnells. Nothing serious, since I didn't bring gear with me (too much else in the way of luggage, since I was travelling with the family). Have to head back down there again sometime soon.
