Uncle Roddus Tramping diary: Tramp No. 8
Mt Richardson 1st September 2002
Third weekend in a row out tramping, unheard of. This is the second tramp in the local area, with Richardson being a low peak overlooking Glentiu and lees Valley. Starts from the Glentiu Picnic area and passes a small waterfall before a steep climb up through the beech forest. Left the Picnic area around 12PM and got to the top in 1 and 1/2 hours. Admired the views but the nor'west was becoming quite strong. Headed east along the Blowhard track through open tussock and old burnt tree stumps trying not get blown off the hill. Dropped down the bypass track to complete the loop back to the car. The wind was getting dangerously strong and I had to stay very alert for falling branches or trees. Arrived back at the car at 3:20pm.
