Kent, Geoff, Merridy, Ben, Madie, Roy, John, Laurie and me
I got a message of Kent saying he’d be doing Davids Crevasse.
I hadn’t done it before as it was meant to be a fairly so so canyon and the traditional exit involved a horid scrub bash down to the Grose then either across to Perry’s lookdown or up to Pearces Pass, either option being a fairly large day.
But it had been a few weeks since I’d managed to get out on a trip and I hadn’t organised anything and Kents trips are alway memorable and, well, in for a penny, in for a pound.
Kent and Ben swing past Roy’s place to pick us up and we meet the others at the Mt Banks Picnic area. The old road around Mt Banks is easy walking but an even easier ride. I’d done it quite a few times on the Mountain Bike. Despite the sign saying “walkers only” bikes are approved in the PoM, something I have confirmed a few times with the NP office at Blackheath.
Anyhoo we do the meet and greet and head out along the fire trail. I soon regret forgetting to put the impact eating innersoles back into my shoes, and even more that I didn’t bring the bike….
The views are worth some sore heals thou
We spend a bit of time snapping off photos at the Lookouts and make a quick detour to Frank Hurley Head for some morning tea then leave the track and drop into our creek/gully/crevasse
And then instead of continuing down we scramble around to a semi secret pass and up we go
Ben cheating with Jumars
Madie is just happy to be here
And then it’s an easy stroll back to the car
Party size 8
Time: 8hrs car to car taking it easy with Geoff still recovering from knee replacement

Few people ever own anything that works, fits, or looks as good as a truly well-built bike. :-Elden the Fat Cyclist
