Uncle Roddus Tramping diary:Tramp No 64
Mons Sex Milla - 29th April 2007
A regular trip on the Christchurch Tramping Club's calender, this particular time we had a party of about 10 or 12 trampers who set off from the St James Walkway car park about 10:30am on a clear and warm day.
After following the four wheel drive track some way, we then slogged our way up the hill to the tarn just below the summit where upon we rested and probably had lunch. We then continued on to the summit, arriving there upon around 3:00pm. Some of the keener members of the group wanted to carry on along the ridge to Garnet peak, whereas Uncle Roddus joined the soft group heading straight back down one of the ridges, due the the fact that he hadn't been out in several months. The soft group arrived back at the cars about 5:30pm and had to wait another 40 minutes for the other group.
