Mount Bogong the Easiest Way

Sat Dec 4th 2021 - Sun Dec 5th 2021

There is no such thing as an ‘Easy’ route up Mount Bogong, Victoria’s highest point, at 1986m, just ‘Easier’ routes. This walk will go via Granite Flat Spur, the ‘easiest’ route. Compared to the traditional route of Staircase Spur, this route saves about 500m of climbing. And compared to Eskdale Spur, this route saves about 200m of climbing.

We’ll meet at the Mountain Creek campsite and drive on un-sealed roads (AWD needed) to Granite Flat Spur. From there it is walking up to the summit for fantastic views before going onto the delightful camp at Cleve Cole Hut. On Sunday most walkers will descend via Eskdale Spur, except for the drivers, who will descend Granite Flat Spur.

This walk is alpine, and some previous pack walking experience is required. Mount Bogong has a nasty habit of generating its own weather, despite good forecasts, and walkers need to be prepared for this, including the possibility of snow.

Despite the possibility of bad weather, this will be a memorable walk on the roof of Victoria. We look forward to seeing you there.
