Climbing and Alpine Trips
Leaders of mountaineering trips will normally require participants to have received alpine instruction or gained equivalent experience.
Some trips are intended for those who have recently completed TTC's alpine instruction course.
We often have non-members participating on trips ... many people have joined the club this way.
TTC also supports those wanting to contribute to the club by leading trips or helping others get into the Wellington climbing scene.
Some trips are notified to the ttc-climbing email list but do not wait for that if you see a trip you want to participate in...contact the trip leader!
Please bear in mind that a climbing trip
sometimes often switches its objective or dates due to weather or mountain conditions!
Contact Stu Hutson on 027 686 5636 or Dave Grainger on 021 444 702 with any enquiries about this trip list.
This list of NZ mountains may help you select a climb.
Here is a log of past trips.
