Bushwalk: Cathedral Mountain and Du Cane Traverse

Full
Grade:
Hard
Duration:
10 days
Leader:
Anne
 
Area:
Tasmania: Cathedral Mountain Lake St Clair Reserve
Maps:

Hi Spanners I am putting together an extended walk in the Tasmanian High Country in Jan 2019. Approx 14 days from approx 5th Jan It is going to be amazing. 8 days (approx) Cathedral Mountain, then Up the Du Cane Range starting with Castle Crag, then out via the Labyrinth track to Lake St Clair. Followed by 3 days doing the Frenchman's Cap walk (probably) Lots of scrub, boulder fields, amazing views, strong chance of crazy weather - sun rain snow hail cloud, cold hot etc. It is going to be hard (but fun) so this is not for the faint hearted but experienced alpine overnight pack walkers. .

To come along you must have done at least 4 nights off track overnight walking experience or a longer walk (pref in Tasmania ) and have all the right gear.

We are going to be driven to track start and pay for accommodation etc, so there will be related costs.

Let me know if you are interested
