In the footsteps of West Coast gold miners

In the footsteps of West Coast gold miners.

Mining relics, snow, and magnificent views were highlights of two South Island tramps done by Pip Newton and Vicki Wogan in July. After warming up by climbing Mt Fyffe near Kaikoura, they spent three days on Kirwans Track near Reefton, following in the footsteps of early gold miners.

A perfect summerís day high on a mountain

Summer on Mt Harper

Lorraine Johns recalls a perfect summer's day spent high on Mount Harper, and a previous climb of Mount Murchison, the highest peak in Arthur's Pass National Park. Both peaks are typically climbed from Barker Hut and Lorraine speculates on the possibility of ticking off both summits in the same weekend.

Coming up

4 November Life/50 year membersí night

Life/50 year membersí night

After some rousing singing of old tramping songs led by Michael Brown and Peter Barber, the theme of nostalgia will continue with the first ever public showing of Paul Maximís new film Kime Hut Ė Through the Ages. The Club has a long and intimate association with this venerated alpine shelter, famous for its chilly interior yet heart-warming appearance when it looms out of a thick Tararua mist.
