25 May, Sat 8:00AM Mt Colong exploration
Grade:5/6 Length 8km  400m Sydney Branch
Mark G.
Accommodation | An activity that involves an overnight stay, using hard-roofed accommodation such as a cabin, hut or hotel.Walk | A bushwalk of any kind short or longMt Colong lies deep within the Kanangra-Boyd National Park and is approached on the western side via the Old Colong Stock route. It has an amazing flat-topped grassy summit with the Blue Mountains' largest cairn on top, standing over 5 metres high and built by expert Scottish stonemasons in the early last century. It even has a tunnel right through the middle and really is a sight to behold. Of course, there's a book to sign as well. We will ascend via one ridge and descend via another. If there is time, I'd like to visit Square Rock which is close by. Because it's about a 100-minute drive from Oberon, which is the nearest town, I intend to stay here the night before the walk. Off-track and scrambling.

The walk is generally a grade 5, but for those who want to climb the Citadel, it will be a grade 6. Rock scrambling and off-track walking.
