The first peak we tackle will be Etheridge Ridge, the fifth highest mountain in Australia. We begin on the summit road via the historic Seaman’s Hut, built in 1929 as a memorial to skiers Laurie Seaman and Evan Hayes. After about 7km, we reach Rawson’s Pass, where we take a rest break before tackling the final 1.8km to the summit of Mt Kosciuszko, Australia’s highest peak. At the top, we celebrate a job well done, before descending along the Lakes Circuit track and then completing our final summit of the day, Mt Carruthers. The views from here are stunning, and we take the time to soak up the views before returning to Charlotte Pass via a stone crossing at Snowy River.
