Mawson Plateau Traverse

Monday 7th March 2011

The track to Lake Belcher was followed to the saddle below Mawson Plateau, then the short climb to the plateau followed by a pleasant walk over the top.  We went to the western side for views over Lakes Belton and Belcher befpre crossing to the opposite side overlooking Lake Dobson.  The descent route was via the ski area and the final descent was via the old and partly overgrowing Golden Stairs. From Lake Dobson we had no choice but to walk up the road to the Wombat Moor car park.
