Ascent Trip Report

Set off at 2pm along The Razorback with my 14 year old daughter and three work colleagues with their kids. An enjoyable walk in overcast conditions with spectacular scenery of the Victorian high country. Set up camp at Federation Hut with no one else around, then completed the 2km climb to the summit to watch a most impressive sunset. Still a few little patches of snow on the flanks of Feathertop to play with. Next day was sunny and much warmer. Started off with a walk to the springs on the west face of Feathertop to top up the Camelbaks then made good time back to the cars. A most enjoyable walk and my daughter's first hiking/ camping experience. Hopefully the first of many.
