    Thanks guys,

    I was freaking out on the carlons head climb. We were 200 metres up and there was 50 metre cliffs on either side of the climb. I have annoted the photos now. Some of the spikes were loose and have been there for over 30 years.

    Nice trip! (except for that storm). I saw one tent, but didn't see a hammock, though that looked like a perfect campsite for them...

    Looks like beautiful countryside. Thanks for posting.
