Mount Bartle Frere - Eastern Approach (Wooroonooran National Park)
26 Aug, 2019
Very Hard
15km return
12 hrs
Mt Bartle Frere my last climb for State8 . I had been told that it is the hardest and I would have to agree mainly due to being tropical and all that entails.
Mt Zeil was interesting as was Mt Woodroffe as there is no trail to follow requiring some Google Earth pre planning. Anyway, all done now and how lucky was I a cloud free day! Mind you, no view from the summit but a good view from the helipad. Time taken 7h 45min. Bad cramp in left leg on the decent slowing me up. Went through over 6lt. of water. Age 62. Thanks Qld for very well maintained Parks and free camps - with showers. Extra special thanks to Ann my ever enduring wife and support team.
