Climbing and Alpine Trips

02.jpg: 1024x768, 176k (2014 Jul 21 06:59)

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!
