The Hazards

See the full version on my new website: ∞ The Hazards – Scrambling up to prehistorical views.

At just over 450 metres, Mount Amos isn’t really that high, but its inclination gets rather steep & challenging. You’ll have to scramble your way up (and down again!) over several huge granite boulders on the upper parts to reach the top. My trusty Wilderness Coffee flask suffered a couple of dents as I clambered along that track… ;-)

Early January 2013, an unusual heat wave was blasting over Tasmania. The island has a much milder climate than the rest of Australia. But on the day I climbed Mount Amos, the temperature reached a scorching 37 degrees Celcius. On days like that, it’s a good idea to go for the hills & cool off in the fresh mountain air. Once you’ve braved the hardcore scrambling bit, you’ll be rewarded with some truly awe-inspiring views over Wineglass Bay and the Freycinet Peninsula.
