No Disappointment on VK3/VC-014

Mt Dissapointment regularly comes up on my SOTA Finder app as the 3rd closest peak to home.  I have been eyeing it off for some time and the opportunity arose on a Sunday afternoon in late June. Others have done it on the same day as Pretty Sally for a total of 6 points but I had time only for one activation.  And it would be another twilight  one at that.  The weather was overcast and not cold,  14 or 15 degrees.  There had been no rain for the entire week and I thought I would find the bush dry and the tracks walk-able.

The main street of Heathcote Junction becomes Nth Mountain Rd, which then becomes Sth Mountain Rd, which after about 11 km from Heathcote Junction becomes Mt Disappointment Rd.  About 2km further on I parked at Blairs Hut Picnic Area, a cleared space with toilet and picnic tables. Just nearby the track to the summit area is clearly set out, despite the pot shots. image Continue reading
