Egmont Alpine Club

Open Climb 2007

The Mt Egmont Alpine Club open climb 2007 was a great success, although the views were limited because of cloud & mist. Personally, I like the cooling effect this provides. Dr Richard Holve, a GP locum at Ruanui Health from USA went up with a fast group while I plodded up at the back, in case there was a medical problem I needed to attend (and I now prefer a slower climb). We caught up at the top (he had all the views, I got the mist).
