Trip Report

After a spectacular day approaching and ascending Mount Willis we awoke with sunrise to a beautifully clear day on Saturday, September 12 2015, quite eager to ascend the lofty Mount Stewart that we’d been staring at for a good portion of the previous day already.

This area looks amazing! Can Mt Stewart alone be done as a 2 day backpack or is 3 days/2 nights more appropriate?


It is an amazing area. Stewart can easily be done in two (long) days - assuming you like a bit of suffering. :) We did Willis the same day we approached and Stewart isn't much longer than that peak. You could approach, set up camp and bag Stewart on day 1 and then exit on day 2.

Thanks for the reply! So to hike and bag Stewart in one day would be like 30kms? I'll be sure to pass this on to my mates!

How difficult would it be to scramble over the ridge you ascended on the flank of Mt Willis down into the Valley of the Lakes and the head waters of the MacDonald Creek watershed?

Hey Keith, honestly I don't know but I believe people have done it from the col so I think it's doable.
