Mt Ernest overnight...between Barney & Lindesay

Postby ofuros » Thu 17 Sep, 2015 10:39 am

To start, there's a boulder field to work around on steep, loose, avalanchee terrain,
use the side of your boot to dig into the soft dirt to stop you sliding down the incline.
Once on the ridgeline away you go....rollercoaster up & down with a couple of patches of
med-dense bush along the way.
Alternative views of the double headed Barney & it's southern ridges with limited views of Mt Lindesay on
the way up.
Telstra & ticks....

Having a breather....

Summit camp...

Smoky, afternoon spot fires made for a fiery red sunset...fine morning mist in the early hours...
awoke to clouds below & mountains above.
Just what i needed, breathtaking... 8)

Oops nearly forgot.....2 tree snakes spotted around the creeks & a red bellied black on the mount.
Spring is in the air. :D

In via Yellowpinch, then behind campsite 9 sidle sideways
through the bush to the fence/ridgeline...then away you go.
Or you could follow a ridge up behind camp9, then traverse left, about 2/3rds
of the way up, then cross to another ridge which takes you up to the saddle.
That's under the tree canopy all the way though & a bit boring.
Or up via Cronin Ck falls & turn it into a circuit...
Or in via the border gate...;)

I had forgotten all of those options, I had gone in via the border gate some time ago. Nice to see it still looks the same.
