Hi all,

My name is Curtly and techically I don't live in NZ I'm on the other side of the ditch on the Gold Coast in Oz. I have however done some tramping around the south island. My wife and I walked Key Summit, we learnt some valuable lessons about midges, mud and possums at the hut on the Welcome Flat track. We went to Glenorchy to do the Rees-Dart track, but unfortunately it snowed down to 900m it was November :o!!, neither of us have any experience or equipment for that sort of tramping so that effectively can that which  left us a spare week . So we did some other smaller day walks around the place.

I do a lot of peak bagging here though. Coming into winter the days have been around 26c, just right for climbing. Last Saturday I climbed with 2 other blokes up Mt Warning for the sunise. It's a 3-4hr climb up the 1,156m mountain. The track is basically 8.8km return. We left at 2.30am and reached the summit at 6am.Just in time.



I have also climb a number of local mountains of the years.
I saw this site advertised in the April 2009 NZ Wilderness mag and thought it was pretty cool.

Curt.
