Victoria Range Grampians NP
Victoria Range is in the Grampians National Park.
Hour and half + roo time from home.
There are summits of value there. It was a no-go zone due to the fire that was there summer 2012. See activation of VS-025 & VS-021
Rock climbing will be involved so wont be doing in wet. Break this into at least two trips as access from North is challanging.
Mid August – VK3/VS-005 – (Chimney Pots) & VK3/VS-023 (Point 726)
Access from Glenelg River Rd. Track to lookout on way to Chimney Pots. Car park off Glenelg Rv Rd then up from the south. 3Km
Access to Point 726 from Harrop track. Using tracks to avoid the thick scrub experienced earlier. This is where the fires were during summer so access would be easier as the middle scrub gone just dress to get dirty. May come straight across if the scrub is clear enough.
Access to South Victoria Range from Harrop track. Another 8Ks so not sure if will be three in one day.
VK3/VS-006 (Mt Thackeray) +
Victoria Range Rd is closed and 4WD from North. Have talk to people who mountain bike along here is it is steep.
Apparently access from front is possible.
hmm more work needed for a plan. Really need access to Victoria Range Road.
