Sullivan Rock hike

Sullivan Rock

DETAILS 15km loop on the Bibbulmun Track over Mt Vincent and Mt Cuthbert; stopping for a lunch break at the Monadnocks Campsite. We’ll then continue on a firebreak track to return to the cars. This hike is for people with a decent level of fitness as the first half of the day has two challenging climbs and walking ascending through the forest. The return walk is along relatively flat terrain. Meet 9am for a 9.15am start – return to vehicles approx. 4.30pm, depending on the speed of the group. ______________________________________________________________________ Difficulty: Medium. Length: Approximately 15 kms. Terrain: On track, rocky at times ______________________________________________________________________ MEET DETAILS Meet Meet at the Sullivan Rock car park at 9am for a 9.15am start. From Armadale, take Albany Highway south for approx. 28km to Jarrahdale Rd, then continue along Albany Hwy a further 9km. Sullivan Rock car park will appear quite suddenly after a bend in the road – look out for an orange Bibbulmun Track sign on the left; the car park is on the right hand side of the highway. Participants are encouraged to try to arrange carpooling to the meet point. Saves money and the environment! ______________________________________________________________________ WHAT TO BRING Food - Snacks and lunch Water - 3 litres Gear - Hiking shoes or boots, rain jacket and other wet weather gear in case it rains. Sun Protection – Broad brimmed hat, sunscreen. A Great Attitude! - Fun, laughter, and an adventurous spirit. Note: Suitable hiking shoes or boots are essential – no sandals or thongs or any other unsuitable footwear. Avoid any cotton clothing. No jeans or heavy cotton tops. This is particularly important if it is raining. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- RSVPs and "No Shows" If you RSVP to attend this hike and find for some reason that you are unable to make it, please make sure you change your RSVP to "No" as soon as possible, and in any event, no later than 8.00 am on the morning of the hike. It is unfair on everyone else attending if we are waiting at the meet point for you and you do not show up. Repeated "No Shows" will mean you are removed from the group and will no longer be able to attend SOTB hikes. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Important Note and Disclaimer As a voluntary participant in a South of the Border Hiking Club activity, you are taking full responsibility for your decision to participate, and you accept all risks and responsibility for all possible outcomes related to your health and wellbeing, and any damage to personal possessions and equipment. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Further Information 1.
