Eleven brave walkers ignored the near freezing conditions and all met at the Mt Greville car park for our walk up the mountain. Included in the numbers was Anita & Damien, guest walkers from Brisbane. Temperatures had warmed up a little by the time we set off but fleece jackets were still needed, it’s cold in the gorges as very little light penetrates through the tree canopy.
As usual we ascended the mountain via Waterfall Gorge, there is a lot of branches and sticks in the gorge as we have not had decent rain all year to help flush out the debris. This made the going tough and a lot slower than normal so it took us longer to reach the rocky outcrop below the summit where we normally have smoko. National Parks had recently had a hazard reduction burn so unfortunately we were not walking through the lush vegetation with winter flowers that Mt Greville is known for, instead we had to walk through a burnt out landscape.
