North Ridge 1
0
From the Perth up the spur over Pt 1049 metres to the summit. Mind the scrub – it’s heinous. Old maps indicate the peak to be the higher 1901-metre one at the ridge junction, rather than the 1845-metre peak currently shown.
W F Heinz, W Barrowman, D V Apperley and party, March 1937. J Bamford, G Howitt, J R Jackson and I Jeffery also climbed the North Ridge, at Easter 1954, but descended from the peak down Hughes Creek.
