4 MH - Day Walk
- Radiata Plateau - Blacks Ladder - Esgate Pass
What a way to celebrate the preservation of Radiata Plateau! Join me, a new leader with UBMBC but a regular one with SBW, on a circuit walk from the plateau, down to the ledges and following them through to Esgate Pass. Some scrambling and exposed sections on the ledges and then an exposed traverse along a narrow ledge followed by an awkward scramble and then a 4 metre clamber up chains with a very exposed drop below. Not technically difficult but if you are not comfortable with exposure then this is not the walk for you. Probably 5 hours depending on the group and weather.

3 M - Day Walk
- Lions Head
I will be leading an E-M walk out to Lions Head on the Kings Tableland, Wentworth Falls. It is a walk with many views of the Jamison Valley from a different angle and at this time of the year, the wildflowers should be out.Bring lunch as the walk is about 2 hours each way although a visit to the Mountain Top Pie shop at Wenty afterwards is on the cards!

3 M - Abseiling
- Penrose Canyon and Alcatraz Canyon
Penrose (aka Crooked Crevice) is on the Newnes Plateau near Tiger Snake Canyon. It is a very tight canyon where you squeeze between the walls. There are three abseils. A short drive brings us to Alcatraz canyon, (named after a nearby prison farm). This canyon has one spectacular abseil down a curving waterfall into an enclosed bowl. You can change clothes immediately after the abseil. . There is a short walk in and out.
