What’s for dinner?

It’s a problem we have every week: what shall we have for dinner? Most Mondays the Les Rock crew get together for a climb and dinner in Melbourne¬†city. Back in the day, we used to go next-door to Miss Libertines. The kitchen was open until 9, they had $5 pizzas, beer, could cater for vegetarians…

A ‘situational’ weekend at Arapiles

Quite a few firsts were achieved when Les Rock took a trip out to Arapiles on the weekend of 9-10 May. It was a the first time to Arapiles for a few, and the first time outdoors for a couple. The more experienced members of the group were happy to explain the finer points of…

We’re heading to the Grampians Arapilies on Feb 7-9th. The plan was to do some climbing around the Summerday Valley area.

Les Rock takes over

We held another very successful Midsumma climb on Monday with around 20 people joining in the fun. The climbing gym was so populated with Les Rockers (and others) you could barely get a rope! Afterwards we had dinner at the Queensberry, where we took over the entire back room. Here we all are BEFORE the…
