Benmore 29th September 2002
Another club trip this time to Mt Benmore behind lake Lyndon in the range which carries it's name. Benmore is pretty much open travel with no bush, just light scrub and tussock. The earlier brilliant spring weather had gone to be replaced with cool wind and light rain. We headed up the northern ridge heading east along the top after a good grunt up.Had lunch at a rock outcrop and as the weather closed in most of the party turned back. Four of us continued on up to the summit for another hours travel in the rain and then headed straight back down the way we came. Fortunately the wind stayed light so it may have been a bit wet but wasn't too cold.
