Bungleboori Canyons

Day 1 First up was navigation practice on route to picking up Sierra, Shaun, then dinner at Blackheath where a sudden hail and rain storm kept us inside for a while longer. It soon passed by and with faith restored in the Norwegian weather service we drove out to the...

Brief trip report 3 peaks

Just a quick report on my 3 peaks walk the other day. Summary is I just made it, but it was hard going and I wasn’t very well for most of it. Set off about 5 am and made good time to the Cox’s river, just over 5 hours. Went down Yellow Pup track but then...

Kalang Falls and Kanangra Main

The realisation of items forgotten started early in the trip when Adrian took a call from home. Had he forgotten a small rucksack still sitting in the kitchen? Yes … but following some quick calculations it was decided it contained nothing vital. Then after the...
Leura-Federal Pass-Katoomba

Leura-Federal Pass-Katoomba

Given that the weather forecast indicated a mild day in the Blue Mountains, and thus was probably the last chance to do a non-canyon walk here before hot weather set in, I organised this walk which turned out unusually to be an all-bloke walk (usually the girls are in...

Kristian was the original leader for this trip but after abseiling together near Katoomba (fun, fun, fun) on Saturday it was clear he needed a day off to rest. So instead of staying in the mountains that night, we headed back to Sydney and I took over leading the...
