Climbers will represent Graeme Dingle Foundation Waikato by overcoming climbing the Hakarimata Kauri Loop Track multiple times in 4 hours.

Waikato

“Climbers” will represent Graeme Dingle Foundation Waikato – by overcoming climbing the Hakarimata Upper Lookout Track coming down via the Kauri Loop Track (3km) and their pledged return trips in 4 hours. Climbers choose their own challenge and pledge the number of return trips they will complete in 4 hours.

Climbers will be proving that what they have inside is greater than the obstacle they face. By setting and achieving return trips, and a fundraising goal, they will be role-modelling our mission of empowering young people to overcome life’s obstacle. Supporting Graeme Dingle Foundation Waikato to deliver action packed values based programmes to our tamariki and rangatahi. Every $1 we fundraise and invest provide benefits of $7.80 back into our communities.

The Hakarimata Kauri Loop Track sits 260m above sea level. The Track is 3km long consisting of 1,500 steps! "Climbers" will have a 4-hour period to complete their set target of return trips.

One of our founders Sir Graeme Dingle himself overcame many mountaineering feats that include:

- Numerous first ascents in the Andes, Himalaya, Antarctica and New Zealand.

- First ascent, in one season, of all six classic European north faces including the notorious Eiger in Switzerland and the Matterhorn.

- First documented traverse of the Southern Alps in New Zealand (100 days in winter).

- First traverse of the Himalaya from Kanchenjunga to K2, 5,000 kms in 265 days.

All proceeds will go towards Delivery of our Waikato Programmes!
