Logans Ridge is the original first ascent route by white explorers. In fact it was the infamous Captain Logan in 1828 who successfully got to the top first.
But don’t relax for a minute, this is a steep, untracked and exposed route that goes directly to the East Peak. The rocky ridge line and exposed boulders mean that you will have sweeping views most of the way, there is usually a cooling breeze, and it is not uncommon to be at the height of soaring Wedge-tailed Eagles!
To qualify for guiding up this exposed ridge, you must have previously been on a guided Mt Barney Lodge SE Ridge expedition, and your observed fitness must be approved by our leaders.
No technical climbing is required, but you do need to be strong, fit, and have a head for heights.
Expand your mountaineering and resilience skills with us once again, and enjoy the freedom and solitude of the World Heritage-listed Mt Barney National Park.
We strongly recommend that you stay overnight with Mt Barney Lodge as the hike commences at 5am sharp – camping, cabins and homesteads are able to be booked, subject to availability. It’s not a bad idea to stay on the afternoon of your return as well, as there is nothing better than regarding your efforts at sunset and relaxing after a huge day.
