Walshs Pyramid



DescriptionRatingInfo
Walsh's Pyramid (922 m) is an independent peak with a distinct pyramid appearance 20 km south of Cairns, Queensland, Australia. Scene of an annual footrace, held on the third Saturday in August, to its summit. The "Pyramid race" starts at the nearby town of Gordonvale and attracts hundreds of competitors aiming to win the $5000 that is up for grabs. The mountain is very steep so you should be reasonably fit to make the climb to the top. For experienced hikers, the ascent and descent can take approximately 3 hours. The vegetation on the mountain is fairly dense and consists mostly of Australian scrub. Many rocks are open and exposed on the surface of the mountain which make the surface very slippery after it has rained. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walsh%27s_Pyramid
