A clear sunny day greeted us for New Years Eve . The day began with a steep climb in thick bush and scoparia , and at its top we were rewarded with great views of the coast and PB. A descent through the bush to Next Saddle for morning tea then another steep climb towards Mt Wylly. Lunch was on the ridge below the summit. Then a descent into a beautiful campsite at Wylly plateau from where our target was obvious. Lil tried to light the bush with the metho ! The “orchestra” , 6 boys from Melb Uni Engineering , with pieces of Lil’s mat that had been torn up en route by the scoparia . A wash in the sunshine was the order of the day before pools started to rapidly evaporate. Astronaut Ice Cream was Lil’s treat for the eve of her birthday. An early night for New Years before the weather turned.
