Mt Nicholas and Huntsmans Cap. Australia Day, 2015
While others enjoyed their lamb Barbies, a group of us defied the Australia Day template and ate salad rolls or snacks on top of a mountain (well, two actually). In deference to my broken hand, I’ll make this primarily a picture post.
The wonderful towering palisade that guards the summit of Mt Nicholas.
I knew from my last visit that none of these chutes give safe access to the top – but I also know they’re fun to explore. This is a grand mountain with lots of interest for rock lovers

The real summit of Huntsmans Cap, with the sea beyond, at the end of the enjoyable rocky spine that operates as its conduit. (Map of routes to come once I’ve got the phone battery recharged to enable download.)
