Mt Richmond Fit  $33

Steve McGlone Email: irishbouzouki@hotmail.com

Phone: 021 233 8531

A winter wander up to Richmond Saddle hut on the Friday (8 bunks, 1 hut ticket or annual hut pass.) There is a creek crossing at the bottom, (too rough last time I was there for 4WD to cross even..) and so a somewhat boring first 1/2 hour or so up a forestry road to the start of the track. It's a fairly grunty 4 hour ridge climb up to the hut.

Saturday trudge up Mt Richmond and explore the tops, take in the views and play with the ice axe and crampons and then back down to the hut. Sunday back the same way. I'm going to cross the creek in old sneakers, or maybe even wet suit booties and hide them by the track for the return journey to keep my boots warm and dry!

Rainbow Snow Skills Easy  $NR

Debbie Hogan Email: debbiehogan011@gmail.com

Phone: 553 0427

Sunday

We will proceed to Rainbow Skifield and will give training on some basics of handling an iceaxe and wearing crampons. Also moving confidently and safely on snow; ascending and descending steeper slopes and self arrest. If the team proves keen and competent then an ascent of nearby Peanter Peak can be attempted. In any case a good day out and training for future snow trips. Snow gear can be borrowed from the club on a first come first served basis.
