Intro: Mt Murchison and a night in Barker Hut! What’s not to like?
Leader: Lateef Ahmad
Date: 24-25 September 2022
Itinerary: Option to stay in Kennedy on Friday night. Early start from Klondyke Corner, up the Waimakariri & White to Barker Hut. Some time in the afternoon to play around/scope out the White Gl. Early start next morning, climb Mt Murchison via White Glacier route, and walk out via same track.
Previous experience required: We are crossing a glacier with potential for crevasses, so glacier experience is needed. Otherwise, climbing moderate snow slopes and some basic snow pitching knowledge.
Gear Required: Overnight gear, 2 axes, crampons, harness, 1 x rope (half or single) per team, helmet, snow stake, prussiks, slings, ATC, optional micro traxion or equivalent for glacier rescue.
Plan B: Weather dependent – different region or some rock climbing perhaps.
