GMC 2015 Photo Collection

 

The ACC's annual General Mountaineering Camp (GMC) is at the mid-way point today and we've been getting a lot of great images back from participants. Here's a selection of some of our favourites - images that show the Stockdale Group area, the climbing, the great campsite (every year is something different) and the people and camaraderie that makes the GMC a unique camp. We'll post another collection of photos at the conclusion of the camp. Thanks to all of the photographers who sent us images.

Haven't been to an ACC General Mountaineering Camp? You can learn more about the fun here.
