I wanted to provide a map of exactly how many peaks remain as you increase the minimum promimence value. Annoyingly, I never found any at the time, but days after the video’s release found this which would have been perfect!

Oh well…



In this video, we climb Mt. Bogong, the highest mountain in Victoria and the second highest* mountain in Australia. But we do it with a bit of a tricky 4WD shortcut via Granite Flat Spur, which has the highest trailhead of any route up the mountain, resulting in the shortest walk to the summit.

*: But isn’t that Mt. Townsend? We need to talk about prominence, and how maybe… the entire Kosciuszko Range could be argued to only be a single mountain.

After that, a quick talk about the State 8, what it is, and our current progress in it - and what will be required to progress further.
