In June a group of kiwis visited the beautiful mountain range of the Cordillera Blanca in Peru.

A mixture of experienced climbers and young up and coming alpinists, they climbed some classic ice and rock routes, then a number of audacious difficult first ascents culminating in the sought after West ridge of Taulliraju. New Zealand Alpine Team captain Steven Fortune will talk about the trip and trekking-climbing opportunities in the area.

The Wellington Tramping and Mountaineering Club hosts a social evening every Wednesday. Each week we feature a different speaker, most often about tramping trips in NZ, but also highlighting adventures abroad and other topics important to trampers and mountaineers.

Doors open at 7 pm for a cuppa, trip sign-ups and gear pickup. The talk starts at 7:30 pm.

No need to book, just come along.
See our website for more details about our club, how to join and how to get involved.
