The Gap - 23 November 2003

The Gap 23 November 2003

Out with the CTC for a second day in a row and back in the same area for this trip along the Torlesse Range to the Gap. This time it was a stunning day as 8 of us headed up from Porters pass at about 9:30am, first climbing up to Foggy Peak and then onto Castle Hill, with a height gain of about 1056M. Had lunch at Castle Hill Peak, before heading down to the gap where we played on the snow that was still there and enjoyed the views. A nice slope with enough snow for some bum sliding made for a quick and fun descent down into the top of the Kowai River. It was a pleasant and picturesque walk back out to the hut before the final leg back to the highway on the path we had walked the day before.
