Mount Bartle Frere - Eastern Approach (Wooroonooran National Park)
27 Nov, 2010
Very Hard
15km return
12 hrs
did this in 5hrs 39minutes from josephine falls car park to the summit and back to the carpark (where i collapsed, exhausted!!!), including 10minutes for a photo, drink & snack at the summit.. beautiful clear day before i left and when i returned but as other comments mentioned it is very cold at the top (which is nice because the leeches die off, after being present and annoying for almost the entire hike) once you get to the open area & closer to the boulders.. ive done a few around australia and i think this is one of the more challenging of the higher summits..kosciuszko is literally a walk in the park compared to Bartle Frere! if your lucky you will get some fresh water in the creek at the fork but nothing after that so take plenty.. always looking for other hiking partners in the area or happy to give advice on hikes ive done so get me on fb... search my name Lincoln murdoch... cheers and happy hiking!
