26 - 27 May
Mt Fell Hut Fit 

Bob Janssen Email: rrcjanssen@outlook.co.nz

Phone: 548 8257

This will be a small working party for the assembly and installation of a wood shed. Bob has made a kitset for the shed which has been choppered up there. It will be walk in/walk out from Timms Creek track-head, E. Bank, Wairau. Could extend to 2 nights depending on how the work goes and the weather. This will the finale for all NTC's work on this hut. A hugely successful ORC-funded project but the money is all gone for more choppering (but road costs to/from E bank of Wairau will be covered).

27 May
Richmond hills (Scale: 2.5) 

Kate Krawczyk Email: NTC.President@yahoo.com

Phone: 5476463

Richmond Hill wanderings. 

After lots of interest on the Facebook page about what tracks are available behind Richmond we will spend about 3-5 hours exploring the tracks up there. 

Meet as Easby park carpark at 9am weather permitting. No pre-registration necessary for this trip but please let me know if you have questions. Good footwear is essential as we will take some rugged tracks if people are interested.

We will go all the way up to the fire lookout if we feel keen. Depends on the group.

Rainbow Snow Skills Easy  $NR

Debbie Hogan Email: debbiehogan011@gmail.com

Phone: 553 0427

Sunday

We will proceed to Rainbow Skifield and will give training on some basics of handling an iceaxe and wearing crampons. Also moving confidently and safely on snow; ascending and descending steeper slopes and self arrest. If the team proves keen and competent then an ascent of nearby Peanter Peak can be attempted. In any case a good day out and training for future snow trips. Snow gear can be borrowed from the club on a first come first served basis.

From Bob's hut travel west of the Spencer range to Ada Pass hut and Lewis Pass highway. Duration about 6 days. Option 2 is North island volcanoes. Day trips up Mts Ruapehu and Ngaurahoe. An overnight trip up Mt Taranaki staying at Syme hut. For variety rest day activities could be mountain biking or river kayaking.
