The Mad One, The Saint, The Cool/Cute One, The Blond One, The Kiwi, The Climber Dude, The Mistery and Meeeeeeeee….. The Grumpy One
Our plan was to do 3 dry canyons up on the Plateau but with me and the Mad One both being a little indecisive, or as we like to say “spontaneous”, things are apt to change at the last minute and as the day was so good we decided to swap out the 3rd one with something more moist.
It was glorious April day and we find ourselves veering off track and working our way down to Crooked Crevice. Another one the Jamieson guide confused the name of and thus most people know it as Penrose Gully (Another slot nearby but not nearly as interesting).
Weirdly I’d never visited Crooked Crevice before. No idea why not but I’m excited to be doing something new to me and we follow Madie into the abyss. Which is generally where you end up if you follow Madie.
And then, sporting some freshly exfoliated skin we head back up the hill..
Hey did anyone mark where we dropped the bags on their GPS?
Cool, do you want to check if we getting close?
Um I left my GPS with the bags…
We find the bags and head off towards the second canyon of the day
And then it was back up the hill where the decision was made to skip the 3rd drish canyon and go drop into something wet.
And thus ended our great day on the plateau.
Hey do you want to do another little short one that may or may not be a canyon?
We sure do.
And thus we set off down the maze of fire trails where I take a wrong turn and it gets dark and Madie says I’m a shit navigator… To be fair I usually only get lost while still in the car….
And thus ended our great day on the Plateau…
