VK3/VS-002 – Major Mitchell Plateau
Went out to be on summit for UTC rollover and new year.
Michele came with me so very happy that the track to Major Mitchell Plateau from Mt William has been reopened and is in great condition.Still a rock scamper towards the end but the rest of the track is in great condition. The weather was average but ok to be out in. As we progressed the rain and wind increased. Setup as soon in the zone as found a protected spot.
There were activators everywhere. I had to keep going up looking for a frequency. Picking up activators as I went.
Decided to leave Mt William as the weather really turned and its a good summit to keep as a backup.
The access is now excellent. Its a good 7km walk on defined tracks that I would recomend to anyone prepared for a rock scamper. Don’t forget the first 1.5km is up from the MT William car-park which is on a sealed road and can be done in harsh conditions.
