Commence this difficult trek by following the track up Mountain Creek past the bottom of the Staircase Spur. The track climbs steeply up the Eskdale Spur past Michell Hut to the tree line where the track intersects with the Granite Flat Track. Once the shelter of the Snow Gums is left behind the remainder of the walk is very similar to the exposed rocky ascent of the Staircase onto the summit of Mt Bogong. 1986mtrs
