Highest / Longest climb in Aus? 23-May-2016 At 1:48:30 PM gaetanr
I did the walk in Federation peak a few years ago via Farmhouse Creek (shortest way in), it takes about 3 days, 2 and half if you are fit. From memory Chapman time is 2 and half day but don't quote me on that. I would had a day to scope the access to blade ridge and scope the descent from the top. One day to climb plus the walk out, that gets you to about 8 days. Given the weather in Tassie, I'll try to have 2 weeks off and hope to have a good weather window on the forecast before starting the walk in.

Regarding Chapman times, his time doesn't include breaks it's something to keep in mind. He usually walk a track multiple time before settling on a timing. What amaze me is that he doesn't seem to slow down much on difficult terrain. On relatively straight forward terrain, I tend to be on the lower end of Chapman times if not faster, but as soon as the terrain gets difficult, more often than not I am slower than the upper end.
