Mount Barney Overnight Routes

Postby craighogan » Thu 06 Jun, 2019 10:21 am

Hi Everyone,
I'm interested in doing another overnighter on Mount Barney. Last year we hiked SE Ridge, camped at Rum Jungle and came back down Peasants Ridge the next day. Randomly caught a meteor shower up on top of East Peak. Amazing trip.

Thinking about doing something similar this year. Can anyone recommend another route which would be similar difficulty to SE Ridge? I was looking at Logan's but it sounds too dangerous with overnight packs. How about North Ridge?

Note that I've read all the posts ranking different routes but they don't really talk about which ones are OK with overnight packs. Ideally would like to start and end in same location so don't have to move cars.

Keep SE as ascent and pick a different descent route. Such Rocky Creek or Barney Gorge. But none are super easy with with a heavy pack especially the other ridges. Logans would be my second choice after SE...
