- Remove those things that are not footprints from huts.
- Visist the 1940's wreckage on the side of Johnston Peak.
- Back in Nelson Sunday evening for a well deserved beer.
Got Duang (wife) to drop me off at the end of Brook street just after twelve and set off walking hoping Id compress twelve hours into eight, as Id imagined starting at 0600 hours. Off I set to walk all day and get up near Fell hut so as to sample some 1940's plane wreckage early Sunday morning. All went well for the first two hours. X marks the destination after dropping into the Pelorus from Rocks hut and climbing up over the two hills to the left. Which are Conical Knob and Mt Fell.
Shortly after this photo things got a bit wrong, I decided that I would try a shortcut, one that I hadn't done for 15 years. As I "knew" where I was going the map didn't get consulted. Slight mistake and heres a photo heading into the mistake, still heading in the right direction.
A nice leisurely start to the day after coffee and fruit. This was the bed for the night.
