Raff and I had hoped the weather would hold and we were keen to attempt Mt. Jerram. On the hike up Opal Creek, the clouds got thicker and thicker and lower and lower, so we turned our attention to the low summit of Opoca Peak (GR 368155). Opoca Peak is a short, but tough technical climb with zero beta. We slogged up to the col between Opoca Peak and East Opoca, searched a variety of locations along the steep face for the best line, geared up, rock shoes on, then the hard rain started. We removed our rock gear and decided to hike in the pouring rain to the low summit of East Opoca (GR 376159), about 1 kilometre to the east.
Fun and scenic hike considering the awful weather. The driving rain stopped as we reached this little summit (2450m). We did the quick hike over to the slightly lower eastern highpoint as well. A fun hike with great views with lots of wet weather.
