This walk will leave from just below Clover Dam on the Falls Creek road, after a  car shuttle. Crossing the E Kiewa River we climb to the old tramway/water race and eventually to the East Kiewa Track and Bogong Saddle, then up Quartz Ridge , carrying water for an overnight camp at Stirling Gap near West Peak.Possibly wander along to Bogong summit if we have any energy left. Day 2 we climb West Peak, admire the view, then slither down the steep rocky bits of the West Ridge to Little Bogong and further down to Moncrieffs Track and out to Mountain Creek, where the cars will be, hopefully. Map here - NOTE - for safety reasons this walk will only go ahead if at least 4 participants sign on a week beforehand, and turn up on the day ....Bogong walk
