Opportunities abound for enjoyable and moderately challenging transalpine and climbing trips on
this section of the Main Divide. True, the peaks aren’t on the scale of those further south, the rock is
at best variable, and there are only pockets of permanent ice, but the area has an isolated character of
its own. You can get lost on the peaks here for a week or so, camp in alpine basins and – when it rains
– retreat to a hut with a good chance of having the place to yourselves.
Routes described here mainly include climbs approached from the Mungo River in the west. Most
Divide peaks here have traditionally been approached from the Mathias and Wilberforce Valleys to
the east.
