Introduction

We have a long history of placing and maintaining logbooks on summit peaks throughout the Flinders Ranges.

Archived Logbooks

The following logbooks have been removed from mountain summits, scanned, and provided here as archival PDFs.

Cleft Peak Logbook

Archived Logbook Dates: -

    The logbook was originally placed here on Cleft Peak by the Adelaide University Mountain Club (AUMC) in 1980. It was removed in September 1989 by the Scientific Expedition Group (Jennifer Beer), pages copied, photocopied and inserted into a new book. This new book (this book) was returned here in July 1990.

    Many pages from the original 1981 to 1990 logbook are duplicated twice in this archive scan, as the pages existed twice in the logbook (original and photocopy). Many pages from the original logbook have disintegrated and are illegible.

    • October 1981 to September 1990: pages 1 – 85
    • July 1990 to June 2015: pages 86 – 191

      Mount Aleck Logbook

      Archived Logbook Dates: -

        The Manager of the nearby Arkaba Station stated that the Mt Aleck log book had been removed in August 2013 “for safety reasons as we are conducting on-going feral animal culling and we can’t have bushwalkers being at risk on the property”. Logbook and container placed in 1986 by a party including John Bartlett, but the whereabouts of that container is unknown.
