With the promise of the weather being fine , but cold, we set off at 6:00. Heading for a breakfast meeting at Lithgow McDonalds.
Then it was off to find a stile along Wolgan Road. From the stile just head up the hill couldn’t be simpler. But there was a catch it just gets steeper and steeper until the cliff line. Then it’s just vertical, the steepness doesn’t matter. Some would say near impossible!!! Upon reaching the top some made the mistake of looking down, which raised the obvious question. How am I getting down from here? Not to worry that was tomorrow's problem.
All collapse at the first seat we find. Some of us head off to find a campsite. Arguing/discuss the sketch map and which rock outcrop matches which on the map. In the end we all l agreed we have no idea, but according to Stu every crack in the rock is Titanic Canyon or was it Donkey Canyon.
We stumble across a likely spot to camp and eventually decided it must be Fig Tree because there is a Fig Tree in it (this turned out to be true). Heading back to get the others, we decide to take a different route to see more of the area. It was so much fun until finally we came across a deep chasm, thought about trying to jump it , climb down, but eventually sanity prevailed and we returned to the others along the route we had come.
The rest of the day was spent getting exploring the many nooks and crannies or maybe we were just plain getting lost (it was hard to tell the difference at times). After several hours it felt like worked we had made sense how everything fitted together and moving around was much easier. As it was starting to get late we could feel the call of a coffee, so we returned to camp.
Next day was spent exploring more of the mountain top. Before sliding down the hill dark to the car and the compulsory stop at Pie in the sky on the way home.
