Upcoming Events

[See Programme for more details.]
18 August
Mt Arthur snow Fit

I currently have a shoulder injury so may not be able to lead this trip. Any volunteer to take over out there? Currently have a few people interested in going.


Climb to the summit of Mt Arthur and return the same way. This will be a fast and fit trip and experience with ice axe and crampons is necessary.  Dependent on weather and snow conditions.

25 August
Ben Nevis Fit


Follow the Wairoa Gorge Road into the right branch then up Ben Nevis Road to the start point. The track leads through beech forest and open clearings on Gibbs Spur then steeply to the summit of Ben Nevis at 1619m.  Four wheel drives preferred for the road in.
