Winter Camp 2018

Mt Feathertop 11 Aug 2018 — 12 Aug 2018

Although this year will be the year without Game of Thrones, snow will still fall and we’ll be back on Mt Feathertop!

You’ve done some rock-climbing and want to step it up? You’re thinking about doing a Technical Mountaineering Course? You want to climb the Himalayas? This is EXACTLY the right trip for you.

Hopefully you can join us hiking up Bungalow Spur, or across the Razorback (whatever ticks your fancy), and meet at Federation Hut for a fluffy snow camp. There you have the choice between:

·       Just enjoying winter wonderland and cooking some snow  OR

·       Joining the mountaineers and practicing self-arrest, building a Swiss pulley system and doing other weird things.*

If you haven’t attended a previous VCC Mountaineering trip or Winter Camp, there will be a mandatory mid-week briefing in Melbourne prior to the trip.

This trip is suitable for all levels of experience, with limited spaces for beginners. The trip leaders – Anna, Matt, Petey and Philipp – have done all kinds of crazy stuff and some of them are also Alpine SAR Victoria members. You will be in safe hands.

Winter is coming.

Contact Philipp, the trip leader, to secure your place or to get more information about snow camping.

*You’ll need an ice-axe, crampons and a climbing helmet at a bare minimum. More details regarding the Mountaineering Program 2018 will be released once we’re done with the planning. Feel free to email us any questions in the meantime.
