Our route Charlotte Pass
 

On April 5, 2005 Barbara Mallory age 54, and Dan Mallory age 54 arrived at the Charlotte pass, the start of the trek to the summit of Mt. Kosciuszko 7,310 feet high, the highest mountain in Australia. It is located in the Great Dividing Range in the Snowy Mountains of New South Wales, Australia s/e of Canberra, the capital city of Australia.

Glacier lake on Mt. Kosciuszko.

We began the climb at 10am from the Charlotte pass, passing several glacier lakes and traversing the continental divide ridge with various significant up and down hills reaching the summit at 2:45 pm on a perfectly clear day.

Although a very easy trek in relation to other climbs, it never the less has taken the lives of some climbers as evident by the memorials along the way. A very pleasant and energetic day’s hike.
