2014 Tramping Camp

The 2014 Tramping camp will be tramping amazing Mt. Somers tracks!

Photos from this camp can be found here.

The intended plan at this stage for tramping camp is:

  • Saturday 13th December – Drive to Mt Somers Woolshed Creek carpark and tramp into Woolshed Creek Hut where if there is room we will stay in the hut if not will set up tents nearby and camp the night.
  • Sunday 14th December – Day trip up to the summit of Mt Somers where the views are of the entire Canterbury plains from Christchurch through to Timaru
  • Monday 15th December – Tramp to Pinnacles Hut and either stay the night their or set up camp nearby.
  • Tuesday 16th December – Tramp out and drive home

Its a pretty easy tramp (except the summit climb) compared to recent tramping camps with short distances that can be covered in under half a day so we can amble along and take extended breaks at areas of interest of which there is a few along the track.

Whilst the tramp is not an overly technical or alpine tramp as we are staying at sea level the entire way it is important that you a fit and healthy for this camp.

It is essential you are able of walking 20km at the minimum in a day with a pack on.
