Just a brief post this round – tomorrow, we fly off to my favourite country in the world!
Last week went relatively well, with some good short runs during the week, some solid time spent on the elliptical and a medium length trail run on Monday that went pretty well. However the big event happened over Friday/Saturday when a buddy and I headed out for a visit to the Cathedral ranges for a bit of a climb and a hike.
Heading out after work meant that, after a smoky campfire dinner of corn, instant noodles and corned beef, we settled down in the car at around 11pm.
The evening was quite pleasant, not too hot and not too cold, but the reclined car seats didn’t make the most comfortable of beds, so without the need for much persuasion, we were up for a 4:30am start.
A bit of light drizzle and cloud meant that views were obscured for the majority of our initial ascent to sugarloaf peak, which was just as well given the terrain was politely requesting for all of our attention. Although progress was painfully slow, the puzzle of scrambling up the side of the rocky peak made for buckets of fun.
We spent the rest of the day tracking Razorback Track across the ridgeline, visiting South and North Jawbone peaks along the way. A little tip – if you’re ever headed out there and only have time for one, definitely pick South over North.
Alright, gotta be up at 0500 tomorrow for the flight, so I’ll just leave the rest of the talking to the following pictures!
