VK2/SM-049 MT Tumanang

VK2MWP and I traveled to MT Tumanang VK2/SM-049 on Saturday 22 November.

This was the first approach to the summit from VK2/ST-001 via Cowangerong  Fire trail by myself.  VK1RX attempted this earlier this year but turned back due to poor road/track conditions.

On the day the drive was uneventful and quite enjoyable.  The terrain changes a bit and it reminds of me a little of South Black range in places.

Here is the track we took from Captains Flat road.to_vk2_sm049

This is the elevation profile from Captains Flat Road.

Along the road there were a number of downed trees.  Lucky enough for us they had been cut up just enough for us to pass.

As you can see from the pictures some of the clearance was close.

CIMG1904 CIMG1905I didn’t think the road was too rough, actually the fire trail is in pretty good condition.  The following pictures show the average condtion of the road.

The Trig point was pretty easy to find too.CIMG1884Got to say this was on of the better summits i have been to recently.

This is VK2/ST-001 MT Cowangerong on the way back.
