Comments



Rock shelter




Travelled on Champion Spur Link Tk & took short cut over Mt Singleton. Note slight mis
navigation prior to Mt Victor as lost each other on FT!

Water at Rumpff Saddle


Went off track to find W




Side trip off the AAWT




Water tank full, but dark black. Tasted OK
Water tank along the way still without a roof, but 1/2 full and clean

Note only walked 10km..hitched a lift to hut
Went off AAWT to visit Mine
Note: GPS batteries died midway, hence straight line on profile

Note in Mt Wills log book: If the tank is empty there is a water supply 15 mins from the Hut.
Walk down the track in direction of Mt Bogong fo 10 mins to saddle with concrete culvert
under the track. (ie. At bottom of first steep descent, on the left is a boulder with cairn on it)
Then , take a bearing of 260degrees (doesn't say TN or MN) and after 2 minutes you'll merge
with a gully on your left. Follow gully down for another couple of minutes and you'll see yellow
tape on a small dead tree. Nearby a piece of polypipe has good water.

Camped on side of firetrail with "campsite" christened in honour of Rob

Picked up W at Stony Ck to lessen amount had to carry up from the Mitta. Would make a good
RV point
Slightly off the AAWT
