Wednesday social night talk on Kiwi First Ascents in Cordillera Blanca

New Zealand Alpine Team captain Steven Fortune is coming to our Wednesday social night on September 21st to give a talk about first ascents in Cordillera Blanca. In June a group of kiwis visited the beautiful mountain range of the Cordillera Blanca in Peru. A mixture of experienced climbers and young up and coming alpinists, they climbed some classic ice and rock routes, then a number of audacious difficult first ascents culminating in the sought after West ridge of Taulliraju. Steven Fortune will talk about the trip and trekking/climbing opportunities in the area. See the Stuff article for more details.

As usual on Wednesday night, doors open at 7pm for a cuppa, gear pickup and trip sign-ups. Club announcements and talk start at 7:30pm.
