Mount Bartle Frere - Eastern Approach (Wooroonooran National Park)
6 Nov, 2010
Very Hard
15km return
12 hrs
Very hard going the area has had a lot of rain recently and washed the track out in places. Gradient would average 4:1 and in a lot of places near vertical with us having to drag our self up with exposed tree roots. The leaches were of proportions I have not seen before in my life and were a constant irritation, this walk is not for the faint hearted. We took the eastern approach and reached the summit in 6 and back down in 4. could be done faster if I was not coming of a week of flu sickness leading up to the walk.
