Explore Sydney!


Here is the Lonely Planet forum thread that Mim mentioned in her comment. I love it:

climbing Mount Druitt

1.


I will be in Sydney in October and am looking to do some climbing. I know of the Blue Mountains, but I've seen on a map of Syney a place called Mount Druitt. Has anyone climbed it? How hard was it and what's the altitude?

HA!

Sorry, but you just asked one of the funniest questions i have seen on this forum. The blue mountains are mountains of sorts, but MT DRUITT???!!

With Mt Druitt, the only thing you found was what is probably the worst, most depressing and crime filled suburbs in OZ! Oh, and there is no mountain there, maybe a hill or 3!

Are you sure James?
I once saw a T-Shirt that said "I climbed Mt Druitt".

You should also climb Rooty Hill while you're at it.

Summer Hill and Rose Hill are also interesting peaks around Sydney.

October should be Ok. Most of the snow should've melted by then. Do you plan on doing the South face or the more technical north West face? I can do you a good deal on a couple of sherpas. Email me ---- comein@spinner.com

#6 Sherpas? Surely you mean a couple of bodyguards, a police escort and an armoured car.

Climbing equipment (carried by all the locals) is a couple of cans of spray paint, a can of mace and a flick knife.

Bahaha that's classic :-)

Hey Chungking, looking forward to meeting up in the old dart. Try to convince your better half to hang around longer... Of course, no ulterior motives at all ;-)

Really looking forward to you getting here. And I have already pointed out the bad timing the couple of people seeking to escape!

Flight of the honkies is looking increasingly imminent... it's only going to take one to start a domino effect and then everyone will flee London en masse, hastened by the oncoming cold weather.
