CCA General Meeting / guest speaker Zac Zaharias

July 21 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Camp 3 on Gasherbrum 1, Pakistan

Come and hear a rundown of the CCA’s recent activities plus general climbing news and points of interest, followed by our guest speaker presentation.

CCA members and non-members are welcome.

Dinner is available from The Limestone Kitchen at the Ainslie Football Club, providing a great chance to relax and socialise with other CCA members before the General Meeting starts at 7.30pm, in one of the meeting rooms upstairs from the dining area. A table in the name of CCA is booked for 6pm.

Guest speaker: Zac Zaharias

CCA President, Zac Zaharias, will be presenting on Mountaineering in Pakistan, covering four expeditions to the Karakoram ranges – three to 8000 metre peaks Broad Peak, Gasherbrum I and II, and a joint expedition with the Pakistan Army to Spantik (7027 m) in the Hispar region. Pakistan offers some of the best high altitude mountaineering and big wall climbing in the world but is largely neglected by Australians.
