Burstall boasts a short approach and an exciting finish on a exposed ridge leading to the summit. Despite usually being a short day I still plan to leave early and make a stop at Mount Engadine Lodge for afternoon tea, something I've wanted to do for quite some time. Tea is $13.60 per person so be sure to bring along enough money for that and carpooling!
I will be screening people for this trip so add yourself to the waiting list and I will begin moving people onto the trip immediately.
We will be moving at a moderate pace with short breaks for photos and a break at the summit.
