Whorouly Ridgetop. Saturday, 14th July

In quite cold but windless and sunny conditions, Adrian led 23 humans, and one very well – behaved dog (Ted), along farm tracks for about 9kms, just south of the Snow Road and west of Whorouly. This led us to climb up onto the same ridge which was ascended by Hume and Hovell in November…
