    Why even say something like that. Go look at a few dozen threads about bushwalking on this forum.

    It is superficially impressive, but I don't think it is as spectacular as it looks. I'm sure there are people here who have equalled or bettered it. I have pretty much knocked off all those Snowy Mountains peaks and a few of the Blueies and Barrington Tops.

    Dave Harris did all 466 peaks in the Tasmanian Peakbaggers Guide.

    Admirable effort.
    I've done all the approaches to Bogong. I never thought that'd mean anything but it does.

    You don't technically need snow on a hill to be able to ski down it.

    Good on him! Not only has he bagged 'em but he's written some amazing track notes on them.
    He looked busy in 2014!

    I like how he invites others to join him.

    It is the writing that impresses me as much as the walking. And Alpine Australia features strongly.

    I have walked all the approaches to Mt. Bogong too. Mulhauser spur and Granite Flat spur have a certain appeal. The T spur is tough.

    The route via Little Bogong is off track/bush bashing. There is no maintained foot route there.
