Mt Murchison

The West Coast

 

As locals, we have passed this perfect view of Mt Murchison many times. The picture was taken by the bridge across Lake Rosebery, a few kilometres south of Tullah.  The adventurous amongst us always make the comment "I must climb it one day"  For us the day finally came with a group of walkers known as the Bushwalk-Tasmania Strollers on Saturday 4th April 2009.

 

From the road, the mountain looks like a solid monolith with the expectation that the views would be the attraction.  However, were were treated to a very spectacular rugged and interesting walk.

 

The walk commences on the Anthony road which heads off to the left of the mountain in the picture.  The walk is 2 1/2 hours one way.  There are 2 short difficult sections.  One about 1/2 way is akin to climbing a ladder but for only about 20 or 30 metres.  The other is near the summit where the track follows a sheer cliff top for 50 metres or so.
