Took the main Wilpena Pound road and after a short walk took the turnoff to Ohlssen Bagge on the left, 2.45 Km to the summit
After a short while the track climbed steeply
The track followed the cliff lines and climbed steadily upwards, switchbacking. After about an hour and a half go to the summit.
Headed to the end of the track and bush bashed over to get a good look at Binya Peak. This is when I found it would have been too hard, there was a massive drop off and then a solid climb up, with scrub...The GPS showed about a km away. Behind it are SOTA summits Mt Karrawara and Mt Bonney, all look equally as hard :(
So not a complete waste of carting the SOTA gear up here decided to do some chasing. Set up the station just below the summit of Ohlssen Bagge. Looking South to the 3 SOTA peaks
Looking North. SOTA summit St Mary Peak on the right.
Set up the FT817 on the rocks.
Got on 40 m. As in Flinders Ranges NP was worth a couple of points to VK5 stations after the VK5 Parks award. Worked a few VK5s, quite strong. Worked Paul, VK5PAS in Whyalla Conservation Park with good signals. I was interesting tuning around 40m here, VK6 stations were really strong, but surprisingly several VK3s were too...
Managed to work SOTA stations Glenn, VK3YY on VC-006 and Kevin VK3KAB on VT-006. These gave me 6 and 10 points, so managed to get to 1000 points, and Shack Sloth status!
Headed back down. Had lunch and headed for Peterborough for the evening.
