Uncle Roddus Tramping diary: Tramp No. 41
Mt Catherine - 7th march 2004
As per most of my trips, this was another day expedition with the CTC. Mount Catherine is a good, nearly 1400M, climb up to a 2085M peak overlooking Lake Heron. A party of nine trampers left the cars near the station house at the end of the road at the north end of Lake heron on a warm day with low clouds sitting over the valley. Following the farm track for a couple of KM, we then headed of up the Northern spur via point 1877 from which we got great views of the tops of the clouds sitting over the lake. Continuing on, we got to the summit about 1:30PM after 3.75 hours and just over 7KM. Enjoyed lunch in the sun with great views right down to Mt Cook, before continuing round over point 2045 and then dropping down the scree into Home Creek. Followed the creek back to the farm track then onto the cars, by which it was about 4:30PM. Just under 7 hours and 15KM.
Another trip with no Photos. The route marked in black is from a later trip I did.
