Climbing Mt Woodroffe / Ngarutjaranya, South Australia

On 18 May 2013, Eric Hodge and I reached the summit of Mt Woodroffe / Ngarutjaranya, the highest mountain in South Australia. Although Mt Woodroffe is only 1,435 metres / 4,708 feet high, in one respect it’s the most difficult of the eight Australian state and territory highpoints to climb: it’s on Aboriginal land which is “closed to the general public” and for which “an entry permit is required”. As a result, Eric and I joined an officially-sanctioned trip to the mountain that was organised by SEIT Outback Australia.
