Summer holiday hours and other shenanigans

As the school year ends, we here at Pulse celebrate by opening our doors a few hours earlier. This means you can have a morning climb before the day gets too hot!

Monday-Friday: 10 AM – 10 PM

Saturday: 10 AM – 6 PM

Sunday and Public Holidays: 10 AM – 4 PM

Closed Christmas Day

 

Gosford Christmas Party – 20th December

We want to celebrate the end of our successful first year as part of the Central Coast climbing community, and to thank you for making it a great first year! Please celebrate with us at our West Gosford Christmas party next Wednesday. The festivities kick off at 6.30 PM. There’ll be a local DJ, a dyno comp, lucky door prizes, a boulder pad raffle and BBQ. We hope to see you there!

Getting Outdoors in Summer

If you have a bit of time to spare in January, it may be the ideal time to get out on the rock.

If you are new to outdoors climbing, we can help you get started. On 20th January, up at Port Stephens, we are running a Day on the Rock. So the Coasties are not left out, we are organising  a Central Coast Day on the Rock on Sunday 21st January. Our Days on the Rock are just that: a day climbing (and abseiling if you like) on real rock. Our guides will have everything set up so that it is pretty much like climbing in the gym, except awesomer. No experience or climbing equipment required. You can find more info here.

For the more adventurous out there, our Intro to Sports Climbing may be more your thing. It’s scheduled for Wednesday the 10th January and Saturday 13th January.

Our members are invited to enjoy a day’s social bouldering out at The Docks on Sunday 7th January. Meet at the crag at 9 AM. This is NOT a learn to climb or guided day, but a chance for our already competent outdoor climbers to get together, make new friends and climb.

Another smart summer climbing option is to gather all your old and crusty climbing shoes and head out for some deep-water soloing (for the uninitiated, this is bouldering with deep water under you instead of mats). Perfect sport for a summer’s day. One great option for the hard-core with access to a boat is Crafty’s, down on the Hawksbury River. You can see what the Crag has to say about Crafty’s here.
