Platform Peak

Saturday 25th July 2015

Platform Peak Summit
Today I took some friends up to Platform Peak because they had not been there before. See previous post here for walk description and map.
We set off from the end of Braslins Road and walked up to the summit using the same route as I used last time. The weather was perfect with clear skies. To add a little variation, on the descent off the northern side of the peak, we followed an obscure track that branched right off the track. This eventually met up with an old track and finally the good road.
This was an excellent short walk with great views, although I didn't take very many photos this time.
It took an hour longer than when I did it solo.
Distance: 12.3 kms.
Time: 4"27"
Ascent: 509 metres
