Track Notes

The feared showers did not eventuate, but the rain during the day fuelled a fine fog. This was not just a blatant trig bag, but a night time walk with (short) off-track section. Roger made us work for YA 90. He threw in a lovely little owl, a few large kangas, but failed on the view.

An anti-clockwise loop starting from the southern end of Isaacs. I was totally disoriented the entire time. My iPhone in a ruggedised case causes poor night time flash results so that, plus the fog, made for a very poor photo.


Distance: 5.6km Climb: 200m. Time: 7.10 - 8.30pm (1hr 20 mins).

Grading: S/E; E(5)

Walk Participants

4 walkers - Cynthia C, Roger E (leader), Stephen M, me.
