*Trips leaders will allocate people to collect and take communal gear on club trips.

Club gear is not available for loan or hire to non-members for private trips.

If you lose or destroy gear hired from WTMC, we will ask you to buy equivalent replacement gear.

Any damage to club gear should be reported to the gear person when the gear is returned so it can be repaired.

Club gear must be returned the Wednesday after it is taken out.

Flies and tents should be returned clean and dry.

If you have any queries about WTMC gear hire, or you'd like to volunteer to help out on the Wednesday night gear roster, contact our gear custodian,  or complete our Wednesday night online roster

Personal Locator Beacons (PLB)

Please see the club PLB policy. The club owns two different types of PLBs. Each has a letter for easy identification of the serial number.

  • A 1212272759
  • B 1310291875
  • C 906143581
  • D 1311295837
  • E 1311292780
  • F 220_597366

Each PLB should be kept inside its dry bag, and only used in accordance with the club PLB policy.

Four of the club’s PLBs (PLBs A – D) are McMurdo Fast find 220 PLBs.
