The plan was to go over Mt Richmond and then traverse off track from Mt Fell through to Mt Fishtail and then Mt Royal. The weather was perfect, so we got an excellent view of our off track routes from the top of Mt Richmond. A small alarm bell went off. At Mt Fell Hut, we scanned the map in more detail and compared it to our notes. We did not have total confidence in our information.
We decided to give it a go but shortly after starting, a few issues arose and we abandoned the plan. We decided instead on the classic route over Mt Fell, down the chain route to Middy Hut and out to Pelorus.
Unfortunately Peggy’s hill climbing legs went on strike, so she and Chris returned to rest up at Mt Fell Hut. They came out down the Mt Fell track the next day. The others had a fabulous time up on the tops on a glorious day and thoroughly enjoyed the alternative trip.
