Magnetic Island bouldering

Bogong staff member Chelsea escaped Melbourne winter earlier this month, travelling to an island off the coast of Townsville, Queensland. There, she found not just a beach paradise, but a boulder playground worth chucking climbing shoes in your luggage for.

A Flexible Approach to Alpinism

28/04/2016 3:44 pm

Summer Alpinism in New Zealand

Trips and adventures will often be planned down to the smallest detail, yet turned on their heads by the simplest and most basic of things – the weather. My recent trip to NZ, ostensibly for the purpose of alpine climbing, was more a test of flexibility due to the weather conditions than anything else.

Cairn in the Alpine National Park

In early February I headed up to the Bogong High Plains for five days of solo walking. My aim was to test out my new tent and sleeping bag, however – and I’m not complaining – I was greeted with near perfect weather, with barely a breath of wind nor a single drop of rain.

The Grossglockner 3,798m I first met the Grossglockner in 1993 on a six day hike through Austria's Hohe Tauern National Park. The thought of climbing it was immediately alluring. Not only because it is the highest mountain in Austria but also because of its beautiful shape.

Bogong Snippets - Anna's Travels

12/09/2014 11:56 am

Bogong staffer Anna Bolmat recently ventured to France, Germany, Italy and Switzerland on a mountaineering trip with her partner Philipp.They encountered unfavourable weather for large part of the trip which put the kibosh on their Mont Blanc attempts. Heavy snow fall and high winds turned them around at the Dome de Gouter. The consolation prize was a trip to Mt Blanc du Tacul, where European summer finally showed its face, resulting in some stunning views from the summit.

Via Ferrata

29/05/2014 11:54 am

What is Via ferrata all about? Via Ferrata is an Italian term (translation is iron way). It is used where a route is fixed up a cliff or mountain using fixed steel cables for the climbers to clip into for protection. Access may be facilitated by ladders or metal rungs on particularly steep sections. In this way routes up peaks become accessible to persons who would not otherwise be in a position to attempt them.

Cascade Saddle CrossingThis article about a trip across Cascade Saddle from the Matukituki valley in New Zealand was first written for the MUMC magazine "Mountaineering" in 1975 by a youthful Bogong owner Neil Blundy. It was a time of long hair, short shorts, bravado and basic equipment. One thing remains the same, a love of walking in spectacular mountain country.

Hiking in Norway

18/02/2014 10:46 am

Bessegen Ridge I came to go hiking in the mountains of Norway almost by accident, little did I know the wonderful walking experiences that I was to find. Rugged mountains, beautiful lakes, long long days and a very big sky are my enduring memory of Norway. See descriptions of three mountain areas, the Rondane, Jotunheimen and Trollheimen. All have a different character and offer a uniquely Norwegian experience.
