      • Lodge Update: Our Maunga April 2021
        • 25 Apr 2021
        • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club
        • The mountain has had a few sprinklings of snow indicating that things up there are gettingcooler along with the days getting shorter. Reflecting on this time last year things were a bit nerve wracking with a close down of thecountry and not knowing what the future would bring for the lodge. We can move into ... Read more

        • 19 Apr 2021
        • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club
        • What a fantastic way to spend Easter! A very memorable experience kayaking the Marlborough Sounds indeed. What made this trip so special? Everything that could go right, went right. If anything didn’t go to plan then it effortlessly became an adjusted plan. An early start to the long weekend on Thursday with an anticipated ferry ... Read more

      • St Arnaud and The Camel
        • 31 Mar 2021
        • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club
        • How long have you tramped for? I have tramped for about 13 years. Tony suggested that we head to The Camel, on the St Arnaud Range, a place where as teenagers he and his two brothers went for their first South Island tramping trip. The clincher for me was Tony’s story of a tin under ... Read more

      • Irongate Hut (via Tunupō)
        • 30 Mar 2021
        • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club
        • The Ruahine Ranges pulled out all the stops for this tramp, with varied terrain, the opportunity to use the gear for every weather in our packs, breathtaking views, and sounds of the rare Whio and rushing water. Taking the long way round via Tunupō loop we were well rewarded for our 8 hour tramping effort, ... Read more

      • Taranaki surfing
        • 29 Mar 2021
        • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club
        • I was so happy when I saw there was a surf trip on the WTMC’s online schedule. I love tramping, but how cool is it to get to do other activities with your tramping friends!As there was no leader yet, Werner and I signed up to lead the trip. The sheet already had Opunake as base ... Read more

        • 25 Mar 2021
        • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club
        • The mountain is continuing to provide good weather and the gondola is now operating again after a short maintenance break. Ruapehu Alpine Lifts are completing work on the lifts so here is hoping all is up and running for winter this season. At our last meeting we decided that we would not increase our accommodation ...

      • From the President … in March 2021
        • 25 Mar 2021
        • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club
        • Nearly a year ago when elected President I couldn’t have come close to imagining all the year would bring for the club. It’s easy to focus on the COVID-19 challenges but there’s more to celebrate. What a year! It’s been wonderful to see so many trip reports over the last month or so on our ... Read more

      • Mount Taranaki Summit
        • 16 Mar 2021
        • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club
        • We’ve regrouped at the top of a 300m long stretch of steep scoria on the way down the north ridge of Mount Taranaki. The sun blazes from a cloudless sky, there’s no wind and it’s hot – a heat haze shimmers off the dusty slope. Having climbed over 1500m today our legs are tired and ... Read more

      • Ruapehu Summit and Tama Lakes
        • 16 Mar 2021
        • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club
        • At 7.45 am seven bright-eyed and eager trampers stepped out of the WTMC Ruapehu Lodge and set off up Mt Ruapehu. It was a great day for a climb—blue skies with barely a breath of wind. It didn’t take long before we left the road and stepped our way across shingle and large rocks, tinged with ... Read more

      • Te Matawai Hut
        • 15 Mar 2021
        • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club
        • On the Saturday morning at 7.30 am six still half-asleep but excited punters met at the train station and set off in the van making our way slowly to the Poads Road end to start our walk. The beauty about leaving at an early time on a Saturday morning is that there is no traffic ... Read more

      • Carkeek Ridge (and Carkeek Hut)
        • 7 Mar 2021
        • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club
        • I have been determinedly Tararua hut-bagging for a couple of years now, having realised I’d haphazardly visited about three quarters of them. Carkeek Hut is one of the most difficult to get to being right in the middle of the range with no DoC-maintained tracks to it. I was waiting for a good weather weekend ... Read more

      • Manawatu Gorge Trail
        • 6 Mar 2021
        • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club
        • This was essentially a day trip cleverly disguised as a weekend trip, leaving Friday night and returning later than expected Sunday arvo, yet only tramping during the day on Saturday. As such we had nearly as many adventures off the trail as on! Most of us were belatedly “getting back into it” post lockdown. I ... Read more

      • Mitre Flats Waingawa River
        • 2 Mar 2021
        • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club
        • What better way to spend a fine weather Sunday than an easy WTMC day walk into Mitre Flats and then back to the roadend via the Waingawa River. Four of us enjoyed the perfect conditions for an approximately 8 hour round trip. Here is a 3 minute video of some of our fun-filled day.

        • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club
        • The Mahu Whenua covenants were established by Robert Lange of Soho Property Limited in partnership with Queen Elizabeth II National Trust in September 2015 to ensure the protection of around 53,000 hectares of iconic New Zealand high country between Queenstown and Wanaka (1). Approximately 70% of the 60km Mahu Whenua Turk Traverse is on Coronet ... Read more

        • Recently, the lodge sub-committee held a special meeting to discuss the future of the lodge and to reaffirm the purpose and usefulness of this club facility. More details of our thinking will follow in a month or two. Now more than ever the importance of the lodge to the club is becoming evident with RAL ... Read more

Covid-19 continues to present challenges but in the bigger picture we remain very fortunate and as a club we’re more prepared. If we return to level 2, it’s likely we’ll continue to run most trips and the ... Read more

        • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club
        • It had been two years since my first experience of the Richmond Ranges, my first overnight WTMC trip, a medium grade where I bit off more than I could chew. So, when I joined the Wellington Anniversary weekend trip to the Red Hills I was a bit nervous but knew I had the chance to ... Read more

        • What do WTMC trampers do after they have declared they are ‘all tramped-out’ after many trips over the previous six weeks of fine summer weather and they are then presented with a forecast for a further one-day window of perfect weather at a cool little mountain where fine days are rare? Well – they just ... Read more

        • 10 Feb 2021

        • I had never stayed in Paua Hut (the club hut in the Orongorongo Valley) and also had not been up Mt Matthews for over four years. When I saw that this tramp required a leader I volunteered. After leaving Wellington Station as per normal on the Friday evening we drove to the Catchpool carpark at ... Read more
