  • P1
  • Alpine (Technical) 1

From the car park the Pinchgut Track climbs to Bushedge Shelter at the bushline, just north-west of Mt Robert (1421m). For a good round trip continue to Relax Shelter then head east to Bushline Hut (14 bunks, serviced) and descend Paddys Track to the car park. The main ridge track continues up a tussock spur to Second Basin, overlooking the old skifield. Follow the rock and scree ridge over Flagtop (1690m) and above Third Basin to a notch below Julius Summit (1794m). To continue south along the Robert Ridge, descend scree to a hanging basin on the west side, sidle under Julius Summit and regain the ridge. Follow the ridge above Fourth Basin to a south-east spur at its southern end. Peaks 1885m and 1877m on this spur are steep scrambles. The track to Lake Angelus sidles the western end of this spur, down to a saddle at the head of Speargrass Creek. Climb to the ridge above, on the eastern side of the lake, and descend scree to Angelus Hut.
