We awoke at Ooze lake to low cloud and rain. With navigation that was going to be tricky we waited till 10 am for the clouds to clear – a little . After a bit of bush bashing it was onto the exposed ridge , in cold winds towards Pindars peak. Near the summit we crossed between spectacular columns to the sheltered side for a while . At our lunch stop , at a point before we crossed the ridge again , the cloud lifted giving us spectacular views of PB , New River Lagoon and the Southern Ocean. Down the ridge into head high , body hugging scoparia we descended into Smith’s saddle and finally over this to our campsite at Leaning Tea Tree saddle ( a rather boggy place really ) .
