Advice on timing : Mt Roland, Cradle Mtn/Mt Geryon

2:42:57 PM
Hi all
Looking at a climbing / walking trip to Tassie. Aims at this stage are Mt Roland, then Cradle Mountain and / or Mt Geryon for their traverses and other climbing. I'm wondering about the pros and cons of going in November or February. Anyone got an opinion? Cheers

You are going to get a range in weather in the highlands of Tassie. Eg 30 in the valleys and snow storms over 1000m so obviously be prepared for that, also the weather changes damn quick the closer you are to the west coast. However, from my experience February would give more stable weather than November (relatively speaking of course). Mt Wellington in November for example still gets snowstorms and while I was living there we almost had a white Christmas once or twice! ;)

Definitely February over November weather wise. Unless you enjoy climbing in the wet.

yeh february is your month, be much drier and usually much better weather. Nov can still be a bit iffy on that front! starting feb would be your best holiday bet! :)

Thanks everyone - sounds pretty clear (no pun intended) cheers

Lived in Sheffield near Mt Roland for 5 years and spent much time in Cradle and the Walls. Definitely February. Had very deep snow at Christmas one year at 275 meters above sea level!
