Trip Report

After summiting Pilot I decided to take advantage of the long approach up the Redearth valley by bagging Mount Brett while I was in the area anyway. I have to say - this is a long day. When Kane says you'll be bagged afterwards, he's not kidding! After descending into the valley between Pilot and Brett I was left with almost 1000 meters of height gain and some difficult terrain to negotiate - and it was a hot day which didn't help the energy levels. That would leave me with a total of 2500 meters of height gain in a remote area on difficult terrain. It was an awesome day but probably not something I'll repeat too often - especially as a solo objective.
