|It's incredibly easy to meet partners at Araps... more so than almost any climbing area on earth. Everybody camps at the exact same area and the approach to the crags is 25 minutes maximum (and usually closer to 5 minutes).
If you can get out to Horsham don't even bother with the gyms. Hands down, Arapiles is one of the absolute greatest trad areas in the world.
Bring more stoppers than cams... seriously. I seem to recall never using more than 5-6 cams per pitch but wishing every damn day that I had 2 full sets of stoppers.
