It would be fantastic to get a group up to the impressive Empress Hut, and make it the base for a weekend of climbing and mountaineering. The general idea will be head down Friday evening, stay in Wyn Irwin and then head off up the Hooker Saturday through to Monday. We can arrange car sharing between us from CH.CH. There is no specific climbing objective for this trip – that can be up for you and your partner(s) to discuss!

We have lots of beta to share on route access up to Empress Hut – flick trips@cmc.net.nz an email for more details from Ben Mangan or read the trip reports below. Feel free to reach out if you are looking for a climbing partner or any more information . Check these links for previous winter trip reports – 2016 and 2020
