Jacobs Ladder plus its history
Brian Fox
Maps, etc:
Katoomba 8930-1S, 1:25,000, Third edition, GPS setting WGS 84
From Devils Hole, Katoomba follow the base of the cliff line in a northerly direction until we reach the old cable which was used as a cable ladder for direct access to the coal mine to the top of the cliff line in 1919. Explore the area and most likely return down the slope to the 6 foot track and return via Nellies Glen, mostly off track. If time permits check out the top of the cliff line for any infrastructure evidence.
Gear Issues:
First aid kit, 2 litres of water, electrolytes, GPS PLB, Appropriate head and footwear
A mix of historic track and some minor bush scrambling.
Expiry Date:
09-Nov-2019 Go Back
Note: Walk Reports will be available to download for 1 month after the walk.
