Uncle Roddus Tramping Diary: Tramp No.176
Camp Saddle - 14 September 2020
Club trip, as 20 people went for a bit of a womble about on the Cragieburn range. The weather stayed mostly fine, with light breezes lower down but stronger and cooler on the tops. We didn't get the gales forecast on Met Service. A lovely bush walk with some of us loping up to Helicopter hill for the views before catching the rest of the group for pre-lunch on the track below Camp saddle. Some members spent this time eradicating plenty of wilding pines on the way to the saddle. Proper lunch was had on Camp saddle where it was rather nice out of the wind but in the sun. From Camp saddle, we headed up over points 1550 and 1525 before the scree run that took us back down to the track back to the cars. Total distance a bit under 12Km and about 1100+m ascent. took just under 6 hours.
