Mt TATE TOUR
Starting & finishing at Guthega this is a two day 22km round trip walk . Commencing in the sub alpine we climb above the tree line into the alpine zone. Unlike a walk through the lower treed elevations staying in huts this is an expedition style journey into the wild alpine where views are vast & remote. Our campsite will be around the Consett Stephen Pass / Mt Tate area with views down the Guthega river over the alpin style Guthega Village. If you only have one night to spare this is the walk for you!
This is an expedition style walk where you are required to carry a multiday pack, campsites are tents in the field. The key to multi-day walks is organisation & efficient systems, we'll undergo a full Gear Shakedown at SMBC HQ to get you ready before starting out.
After completing this journey you will have an excellent understanding of what is required both gear & skills wise to move through the mountains safely & efficiently.
This is a 2 day 22km walk, we spend the first 2hrs of Day1 prepping & briefing returning to Guthega by 4pm Day 2.
It is recommended that you have weather contingency days built in to your schedule as a redundancy so that we can maximise weather opportunities.

It is not required that you have hiking experience but this walk can be likened to a grade 4 walk which includes off trail, steep sections & is physically more demanding. A good level of fitness & stamina is required, you can expect to carry a pack of about 13kg containing all of your equipment & food for up to 15km. The guide will carry all emergency & cooking equipment.
