    I agree with Richie and Jeremy.&nbsp; You want everyone to come along to the meeting before a trip to find out what is involved, and so the trip organizer can see if they are up for the trip.

  • Re: Crazy tubing adventure + some tramping too

    It is an excellent trip tubing down from Mid Waiohine.&nbsp; Make sure you do every rapid.&nbsp; Talk to Jeremy H about it, I did a trip with him and Dan Batten there in February 1997.

    Smiths is off limits to climbers at the moment.&nbsp; The new owners were nervous about people climbing there and when a bus load of school children turned up at 8am one morning&nbsp;they decided to ban climbing altogether.&nbsp; Waipapa is the best crag in the district and not on private land&nbsp;and Froggat is still open!

    Tarn Hut (on the Puketeraki Range) over looking the Lees Valley is a fine spot to sample some nice Sauvignon Blancs or a Merlot if that is your persuasion.&nbsp; What better place to have a nice Wither Hills while looking down on some fine withered hills!
