Mt Palerang VK1/ST-009 1234 metres ASL, NSW Tallaganda State Forest
Mt Palerang is in the NSW Tallaganda State forest. For directions on how to get there see the blog from Ian VK1DI.
Tough walk very steep in parts. The ascent is 343 metres over 1.3 km took 1 hour while the descent was 27 minutes. The view was restricted to tree tops in the cloud.
On 2m 144.200 USB made an excellent contact with Ian VK1DI in Canberra signal reports were 5-7 each way. It’s a shame I couldn’t see the horizon for landmarks such as Black Mountain tower.
Will be back in 2014 for another 8 points and the winter bonus.
Near the summit the stunted forest trees are dwarfed slow-growing due the cold windy conditions
