Getting ThereThe plan is to leave Dunedin at 5 pm on Friday from the usual Tuesday night climbing meeting place by Logan Park. We will drive to the Albert Town campground that night. If you plan to leave at another time, indicate that in the sign-up form.
What to ExpectExpect to be climbing the better part of two days outside at grades of 14 and up - that's YDS 5.7 or French 4-5a - although you will get the most out of this trip if you can comfortably climb at least grade 17 (YDS 5.9 or French 5c). Also expect to be outside for most of two days, and remember that Wanaka can get quite hot during the day in summer so bring plenty of water and sunscreen.
You will need standard climbing gear: climbing shoes, harness, belay device, and helmet. It is section policy that you wear a helmet while climbing and belaying. If you want to use your own rope, please bring it along. Otherwise, we will have a limited number of club ropes along with club anchors. If you need to borrow any climbing gear, please let the organizer know in the sign-up form.
You are responsible for all your own food. Please be sure to bring enough water, as Hospital Flat can get quite warm.
We will be staying at the Albert Town campground (~$6/night), so you will need camping gear. This includes a sleeping bag, sleeping mat, and cutlery and bowl for eating. Please indicate on the sign-up form if you can bring a tent, and how many people it can sleep. You are also welcome to stay elsewhere - there are many hostels in Wanaka that you can stay at for a reasonable price.
