Trampers Restore Christmas Trip — Activities at Re-union were spirited
Trampers Restore Christmas Trip
Activities at Re-union were spirited.
After a break of three years the Christmas trip to the Southern Alps was restored this year. The location was the Waimakariri Valley, somewhat tame to the experienced, but with plenty of climbing to offer the learner.
The party was small (six) and flexible. The climbing was reasonably successful, the weather unreasonably unsuccessful. Four climbs were made, Mts. Harper, Armstrong, Campbell and Isobel. A night was spent in the new Alpine Club bivouac at Waimak. Falls, but mist prevented an attempt on Rolliston. The projected Three Pass trip was abandoned when the weather broke.
The November club reunion at Akatarawa appears to have consisted of beer drinking and bawdy singing by the fourteen present. There was no tramping, one senile member actually using a taxi.
Watch notice-board for details of trips early this term.
