Naas Road, Via Tharwa
Bimberi is ACT's highest peak. I've never been there.
We will meet at the the visitor centre and depart at 0830 for a 0900 start at Orroral car park on Saturday morning and walk to set up a base camp near Cotter Hut ready for a day walk up Bimberi on Saturday then walk out on Monday.
The walk will be on officially maintained tracks to Murrays Gap, 3km from the summit. After that there is an unofficial foot pad.
We can expect night time temperatures down to below 10 and day time temperatures about 25 but there is a lot of variation possible
You need to be fit to do this. If you can climb Mount Tennant then be capable of another walk in the afternoon, you are probably ready. The proposed walk will be long but nothing steeper than Mount Tennant. On Saturday and Monday you could have to carry a pack weighing at least 10kg, assuming that you are wearing your fleece and waterproof jacket.
For safety, groups must keep together on this walk.
I am happy to discuss the proposal. Erick[masked]
